Does your well pump more than 2 acre feet of water annually? Register your well(s) through an online or print form.
REQUIREMENT FOR MAGSA LANDOWNERS – The McMullin Area Groundwater Sustainability Agency (MAGSA) has adopted a Groundwater Well Metering, Monitoring, and Construction Policy and Implementing Rules and Regulations with requirements for well owners. The Rules and Regulations include a requirement to register all wells designed to produce more than two (2) acre feet of water annually within the MAGSA boundary no later than January 1, 2022. If landowners did not register their well(s) prior to the January 1, 2022 deadline, MAGSA offered a grace period through March 1, 2022. Landowners who registered their well(s) by March 1, 2022, were still be eligible for well metering (well and telemetry purchase) financial incentives and rebates.
After March 1, 2022, landowners who did not register their well(s) are no longer eligible for FULL incentives or rebates when they became available. Thereafter, non-registrants could also be subject to additional penalties and charges as established by the MAGSA Board of Directors.
If you have not registered your wells, please do so now! While you will not be eligible for full meter financial incentives or rebates, you could still receive smaller incentives that might become available and you will avoid potential penalties and charges.
MAGSA landowners can register their well(s) a number of ways:
Fill out the paper form for each well you/your company owns. If you/your company owns multiple wells, please make copies of the form and fill one out for each well. Submit the print form(s) by:
Mailing or hand delivering to the MAGSA office at 275 S. Madera Ave., Suite 301, Kerman, CA 93630.
Scanning and sending to the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fill out the online form by clicking the “online form” button below. This is the easiest method for landowners registering multiple wells.
Up to 25 wells per landowner/company can be filled out using a single online form.

About Well Registration Requirement
MAGSA is a local public agency working to position you and neighboring landowners to achieve groundwater sustainability together. Well registration is the initial action needed in preparation to meet well metering requirements also included in the Implementing Rules and Regulations. These new requirements are directly aligned with MAGSA’s goal to equip the local area with more specific and accurate groundwater information. This information helps the area defend against over estimations of water use and ultimately keeps groundwater management in local hands.
Beyond complying with the California law, Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) of 2014, well registration will help MAGSA landowners meet present and future challenges of managing their business with limited water resources.
MAGSA takes seriously the privacy concerns of the landowners it serves and is going to great lengths to protect your personal and well information. Your information will be stored with a private data management company, keeping your information secure and private to the greatest extent possible by law.
