Well Registration & Permit Information

New wells within the Benbrook City Limits require the approval of the Benbrook Water Authority. Please refer to current BWA Water Well Rules regarding requirements for approval.  

The Authority and the NTGCD coordinate the oversight and regulation of nonexempt water wells located within the Authority’s jurisdiction. Owners of wells that are exempt from the requirement to obtain an Operating Permit under BWA's Rules (See Section 5.1) are only required to obtain an approved well registration from the Authority and are not required to apply for a well registration or permit from the NTGCD.
