I just bought 5 acres and the propery next to me is running off my well. I knew about this before purchasing and asked about it. There is no record of any right to water for the neighboring property. The guy that developed my property owned both at one time and has since defaulted on both. He just moved out of the other place and it is now vacant. My questions are: Should I allow a new owner the use of my well? (Right now while no one is there I am thinking I will disconnect the other property) If so, what items should I put in a shared well agreement? This is hard water and I will be installing a softening system and don't want to condition water for others (atleast not without compensation) The pump house has a single feed line out - not easy to just fix it so my line gets softend. Thanks for your help.
