Construction Site Well Review Program

The Department of Conservation’s Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources (Division) is charged with implementing Section 3208.1 of the Public Resources Code (PRC). As a result, the Division developed the Construction Site Well Review Program to assist local permitting agencies in identifying and reviewing the status of oil or gas wells located near or beneath proposed structures.

Before issuing building or grading permits, local permitting agencies review and implement the Division’s preconstruction well requirements. Interaction between local permitting agencies and the Division helps resolve land-use issues and allows for responsible development in oil and gas fields. 

For details on the Division's construction site well review program please contact the local district office.​
