Large water supply systems (e.g. well or surface water intake pipes) with the capacity to withdraw 100,000 gallons per day (70 gallons per minute) or more of groundwater or surface water must register, measure, track, and report their monthly water withdrawals to the Water Use Program within the WI Department of Natural Resources.
