A Guide Book for Well Managers
by Gary L. Hix
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. Both books are also good reading for private well owners because they contain in-depth explanations and discussions of important aspects of well management.
They were written specifically for and about Arizona wells and groundwater laws. Because there are many other western states where the laws and regulations regarding private and shared water wells is are so similar it can be useful to well owners in other states also.
Groundwater is a very precious resource of this planet and we must all work together to protect and preserve it as best we can. Becoming “well informed” is one way to achieve this goal.
