My question involves an easement in the state of:Washington
For many reasons including harassment, criminal threats and interference with my field irrigation, I would like to do something about a shared field irrigation well. This well is shared through a legal and registered easement that basically makes each party responsible equally for the existing pump and the workings of it. Costs related to repairs, maintenance and replacement are to be shared equally. Also, neither party is to interfere with the others access to the well and/or the workings of it, or is to alter the well, the workings of it or the ground around it in any way that might interfere with the other parties use of the well, the water in it, and/or the existing workings of it. There is no restriction on the amount of water that may be taken from the well, or the amount of time that either party may use the workings to extract the water. Of note, this well is an old style ring well that measures 4.5ft in diameter.
1) I would like to put my own field pump down the well and have all of the workings for the new pump place on my property, away from the well easement.
2) I would also like to abdicate any rights and obligations regarding the existing pump and the workings of it.
In essence, I do not want to give up the well or the water in it. I merely want to establish my own extraction method.
The placement of the new and privately owned pump will not in any manner interfere with the existing pump or the workings of it.
Can I do this?
