New Mexico Permit to Drill a Well with No Consumptive Use of Water (19-NM-b)

In order to drill a new water well with no consumptive use of water, a developer must obtain a Permit to Drill a Water Well from the New Mexico Office of the State Engineer (NMOSE) under NMSA 72-12-12. This flowchart illustrates the procedure for obtaining a Permit to Drill a Water Well when the developer intends to use the water for non-consumptive use.


Permit to Drill a Well with No Consumptive Use of Water Process

19-NM-b.1 – Application for Permit to Drill a Well with no Consumptive Use of Water

The developer must submit an Application for Permit to Drill a Well with No Consumptive Use of Water to NMOSE, and include all necessary information. The application will include information on the location of the well and a description of the project.

19-NM-b.2 to 19-NM-b.3 – Review Application Materials for Completeness

NMOSE will review application materials to ensure completeness. NMOSE may request additional information from the developer.

19-NM-b.4 – Construct Water Well

The developer must hire a New Mexico licensed well driller to complete the drilling and construction of the well. NMSA 72-12-12.

19-NM-b.5 – Proof of Completion of Well

The developer is required to submit a Proof of Completion of Well form with OSE following completion of the well.

19-NM-b.6 – Complete Well Record

After the licensed well driller constructs the well, the driller must complete a Well Record. The developer is then required to file the complete Well Record with NMOSE no later than 20 days after drilling is complete. If the Well Record is not received by the expiration date of the permit, the permit automatically expires and a new permit and fee will be required for any drilling beyond the permit expiration date.
