Be Prepared for Drought-related Well Outages

It is important to prepare for potential drought-related well problems so you are not caught off-guard. Shallow wells (less than 100 feet) are most at risk especially during the middle of summer (June-August) when groundwater levels are at their lowest.

Report Well Problems: In an effort to assess drought impacts and general groundwater conditions, the Colusa County Water Resources Division (Community Development Department) is compiling information on well problems county-wide. This information will help in our ongoing efforts to gain a better understanding of the local groundwater system. We are gathering information on all well types (domestic, irrigation, other) and all well issues, whether drought-related or mechanical. If you are experiencing issues with your well (ag, domestic or other), please fill out the online Well Reporting Form here by clicking this link: Colusa County Well Outage online Report Form
