Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How can you determine the status of a well displayed on the GIS database? Are all of the wells in the database active, pumping wells or are some inactive or even abandoned?

The status of all the wells on the location map is active. The wells that aren't on the map but are in the database table are inactive or abandoned. You can access those by typing the well number or Thomas Guide Page when you have this option at the start of the page. If you need additional information, please call our Water Resources Division at (626) 458-6120, 7:00AM - 5:00PM PST, Monday through Thursday.
