Well Water Systems


Well Safety Tips:

  • Don't store or mix chemicals near the wellhead. A simple spill could go directly into the well.
  • Don't pour pesticides or other dangerous chemicals down the drain.
  • Take care when using chemicals to melt ice in the winter. They can pollute groundwater.

Other Recommendations:

  • Seal abandoned wells. They are a direct route from the surface to groundwater.
  • Fit your house with check valves that keep polluted household water from flowing back into the well.
  • Test your well water annually. Inspect visible well components for signs of problems.
