Annual well maintenance is highly recommended. Have your well serviced to check pump performance, depth to water, and the depth of your pump. Butte County has put together a Domestic Wells Pamphlet (PDF) to help property owners navigate well maintenance.
Knowing the total depth and general construction of your well can help you anticipate how your well may respond in drought conditions. This information can be found on a Well Log that was filled out at the time your well was drilled or may be available from the pump company which performed the installation. We recommend always having your well log on hand, especially during dry times.
