Please let us know if you are experiencing problems with your water well. The information will be used to help us in our efforts to understand groundwater conditions, drought effects, and future planning efforts. For agricultural wells, the Abnormal Groundwater Level Report can be filled out and returned to the County's Agricultural Department or the Sheriff's Office. For domestic wells, please complete the Domestic Dry Well Call Sheet and return it to the Sheriff's Office. Additionally, the information can be taken by phone.
“Check Your Number” encourages motorist to look up the recommended oil change interval for their automobile instead of defaulting to the old standard of 3,000 miles.

So it makes economic and environmental sense to “check your number” and be sure you are not changing your oil too soon, creating unnecessary waste of money and resources. Check your owners’ manual, or simply click on www.CheckYourNumber.org to easily find out for free the recommended time to change the oil on most vehicles made from 2000-2015.
