Policy on the release of well data collected by the Department of Pesticide Regulation concerning wells sampled for pesticide residue

In accordance with the provisions of the California Public Records Act (Government Code section 6250 et seq.) and the Information Practices Act of 1977 (Civil Code section 1798 et seq.), DPR cannot disclose the exact location of the wells that have been sampled or personal information about the well owners to the general public.

DPR can release specific well location information to another public agency provided the other public agency agrees, in writing, to protect the confidentiality of the information and documents released. Requestors must submit the written agreement before DPR will disclose the requested information.
