Well Water

A well is usually a good investment as supplementary water supply and is good to use for flushing.

To install a well:

  • Determine the quality and depth of water in your area. Talk to neighbours who have wells or to a licensed well driller
  • Obtain and complete a Water Right Application Form available from the Department of Environmental Protection in the Botanical Gardens. The fee is approximately $65
  • Get quotes from licensed well drillers for all the costs including plumbing


It is unlawful to pipe water from wells to a home faucet where it can be used for drinking, cooking or to top up your water tank. Well water can be contaminated from many sources including your cesspit.
