The Land Development Program (LDP) oversees the construction, deepening and abandonment of domestic drinking water wells. We do NOT permit agricultural wells or irrigation wells; those are overseen by the Nevada Division of Water Resources. We also do NOT oversee or regulate water quality in Washoe County. Water quality resources and information about how to apply for a domestic well permit are listed below.
