From Debbie Greer Crittenden Conservation District
The Crittenden Conservation District is now registering irrigation wells for usage on farms for 2015. As a registered water user you are protecting your rights to the use of an equitable amount of surface water in times of shortage and to establish ground water rights within critical areas. Act of 154 of 1991 requires users of ground and surface water be assessed an annual fee in the amount of $10 per well and relift site. Act 408 of 1989 provides for the collection of a late registration penalty. Any person who fails to register a well or relift site by the deadline shall be subject to a penalty for each year they fail to register. The district will be registering wells Monday through Thursday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For questions or more information, please contact Debbie Greer at 870-739-4464, ext. 104, or come by: One Natural Resources Dr., in Marion.
