If you are planning to drill a new well within the Lower Platte North NRD you need to obtain the proper permits. A well permit from the NRD is needed prior to the construction of all new and replacement wells, except for:
- test holes
- temporary dewatering wells (used less than 90 days)
- water wells designed to pump 50 gallons per minute or less
Well Permit Form
If you would rather have the permit form mailed to you, call the NRD at (402) 443-4675. The NRD permit fee is $50 and should be submitted with your application. If construction of a water well (other than those types that are exempt) commences prior to obtaining an approved permit, a late permit must be completed with a $250 fee.
