Register Your Private Well
The City of St. Petersburg is requesting all customers using private wells for irrigating their landscapes to register their wells. There is no fee for registration.
Well registration will serve as a means of accurately identifying private well use throughout the City. Registering will also assist water restriction compliance staff in enforcing current water restrictions, and in identifying favorable locations for future private wells.
A site inspection may be scheduled to verify the existence of a well.
