Shared Water Wells in Arizona: A Guide Book for Well Managers
Shared water wells serving two or more home are the sole source of water for many rural homes in Arizona. The exact number of people served by shared water wells is unknown as this information is not asked for or collected by any agency or office. These non-public water supplies are not regulated in this state or in many other states. People who get their daily drinking water from a shared water well are mostly on their own to care for, manage and regulate these private water sources.
Managers of these non-public water sources typically have had little or no previous experience in water well management. This e-book was written with them in mind. It is thought that this e-book is the only one of its kind it written specifically for shared well managers. This book is an outgrowth on Gary’s first e-book: “Domestic water wells in Arizona” which was an e-book written specifically for realtors and lenders. The two books go hand in hand just as real estate, lending, private and shared wells do when talking about rural properties.
