Coming Soon!  The Division of Water Resources will be implementing a new web based payment system on March 2, 2020.  This change will better serve our customers; allowing for online payment of fees.  For additional details regarding online payment options, please see the Online Payment System Flyer.

February 2020 Process:

Applications are accepted as a PDF via an Email or paper mailing, and payments are made via paper check or credit card.   If the application is for an emergency replacement of an existing well, please review the Emergency Well Permit Procedures documentIf any additional documentation is required by the individual form, you will need to scan and attach that additional documentation as a PDF document to your email.  Email the application(s) (and any required documentation) to

If the form requires payment of a fee, you will need to contact our Records Section once you have received a confirmation that we have received your email between 8:00am – 5:00 pm Monday-Friday at 303.866.3581 (x0) to provide payment information by Visa, MasterCard or Discover Card.

Once your application is submitted, every effort will be made by the evaluator to review your application as quickly as possible; however, please be aware that evaluation may take up to 49 days.  

March 2020 and After:

When applications are E-mailed to, the payment process will be streamlined.  Rather than calling the Records Section as previous, you will receive an email with a link to submit payment online via eCheck or Credit/Debit Card.   Customers can mail application and supporting materials if unable to email, however, payment can only be accepted online.  See the Online Payment System Flyer above for additional information about making payment.
