New Groundwater Requirements

Non-domestic groundwater (well) users require a licence.

  • Start the application process. Do not complete a well registration form.  Your well will be registered through the licensing process.

Domestic groundwater (well) users are exempt from licensing.

  • Registering your well is recommended. Visit the Well Records page to see if your well has a record already or for an application to register.

Not sure if you’re a domestic or non-domestic water user?

For more information on specific topics such as the use of water in dugouts under the Water Sustainability Act please see the water policies page.
