Private Well Owners Association


The board has been meeting each month during the virus.  They expect the next membership meeting to be on Wednesday January 6th, 2021 at the Pahrump Valley Museum at 10:00 a.m.

Yes, our meeting will now be the first Wednesday of each month, this way there will be little interference from holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We have been working with the Museum and this schedule fits better with their changes for the 2021 calendar year.

We do hope these changes will work for you and we all look forward to our meeting in January, reminding you that dues will be due and that our January class will be on Water Conservation.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           The board asks that you all stay safe and enjoy the holidays as best we all can during this Virus and we look forward to seeing you all in 2021.

The Private Well Owners Association is a Nevada State unincorporated non-profit as a 501(c)(3) organization, who’s mission is to provide Education and Water Testing for the benefit of the well owners and the community.  Also too support and assist the well owners of Basin 162 of their right under the Nevada Revised Statute acknowledging that the private well homeowners, both present and future, have “2 acre feet per year allocation for use”, and “they preserve their legal rights to water under their land for normal rural living and for gardening and raising livestock used to feed their families” for a genuinely “Self-sustaining Life-Style” bringing common good and general welfare to the people of the community.
