DGS97-1 Public-Community Water-Supply Wells of New Jersey



The Public-Community Water-Supply (PCWS) Wells is an ESRI Geographic Information System (GIS) point shapefile with associated Microsoft Access™ relational database. It contains information for the wells in New Jersey that supply potable water to public communities. The NJDEP has cataloged and field located, using the Global Positioning System (GPS), the PCWS wells as part of the Source Water Area delineation process. (Updated 7-11-2011)

The public community water supply (PCWS) layer was removed until a secure web portal is developed.  A locational search for wells (Aerial Receptor Evaluation Search) is provided on the Division of Water Supply and Geoscience web site at

Questions or assistance with searches may be emailed to

For state-wide PCWS data please e-mail and provide full name, title, company info (name, address, telephone number and e-mail address) and a short explanation of the intended use of the data.
