Comments

  • would like to see more updated information. lots and blocks are very important to many of our searches.
  • would like road addresses on well logs
  • I get confused when I am attempting to find water right documentation. If I have a WR# I should be able to retrieve the WR document. Am I missing something?
  • It would be useful if the address of a well location was in the database.
  • As a real estate broker- any time I need additonal informtion on well logs- I know where to go! Thank you!
  • It-s difficult to find a well log on the site if you don-t know previous owners. Alot of the time you think you have the well log according to drill date but there-s no legal to confirm it.
  • Since discovering this site it has been very beneficial for properties I have listed and properties that I have sold. Please continue to have it available. Thank You for providing the site. Janette Rosman- Rosman Realty- PO Box 489- Ronan- Mt. 59864
