SUMMARY UPDATE – WATER WELL INSPECTION PROGRAM

The CWWCA continues to push for adequate funding for the water well inspection program operated by the Division of Water Resources (DWR).  As we reported earlier, we were not able to advance an increase in the well permit application fees through the DWR or the Water Resources Review Committee for funding additional well inspectors.  To that end, the CWWCA developed an alternate strategy and decided to send a letter to the State Auditor requesting an independent financial and performance audit of the water well inspection program.  If the issue is one of a lack of resources, then a performance and financial audit will determine whether that is accurate.  There is no guarantee that the State Auditor will undertake the requested audit; however, we plan to provide useful information to audit committee members and legislators concerning well inspection activity and trends around the state.
