An open well or improperly decommissioned (abandonded) well can serve as a conduit for allowing surface water runoff containing any unwanted toxins and pollutants to directly enter the groundwater supply. This concern is especially critcal in new residential, commercial and industrial developments near public supply wells.

 

Existing state rules mandate registered and unregistered wells located in an area that will be impacted by new developmen are to be properly capped or decommissioned to ensure the protection of groundwater quality and public health. The enforement of these requirements is the responsibility of the Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR). ADWR calls decomissioning of a well "abandonment."
