More irrigation water wells can be drilled according to Middle Pecos Groundwater Conservation District (MPGCD) by making application. There are no restrictions on the amount of water one can use in farming except that it cannot affect the neighbors use of water. The wells are monitored as if the aquifer by MPGCD. If a farmer wants to use more water than he or she normally uses or is permitted to use that person must begin the process by asking for a new permit for the proposed project. The water district will review the request and the effect it will have upon their surrounding neighbors operations. The water district will determine the outcome. There is no charge from the water district for the permit process. The wells are in good condition according to the seller.
