2013 was a banner year for water well permits in Stanislaus County

Stanislaus County can call 2013 the year of the huge water well. Nearly 300 water well drilling permits were issued this year, and half of them were for giant irrigation pumps. That’s about twice as many permits as have been issued in recent years, and the pace of drilling applications expanded dramatically this fall.
