Water Well Drilling
If you are interested in drilling a water well within the range of City services, please note that the state Division of Water Resources administers all such permits. The City of Rifle only requests notification of construction. 

Please go to and follow the links for “well permitting”. 

There are certain limitations and exclusions that may apply to your well.  Please note that typically the state will not allow a well for domestic uses if a potable distribution system is available.
