What you should know about water wells


How we get ground water

Potential threats to ground water

Most well water is good quality because of the filtering process in the soil and the long travel time underground between the water occuring as rain which eventually reaches the well. However, in addition to possible pollution from agriculture, industry and transportation, even contamination sources in our homes can pose threats to ground water. Incorrect disposal of common household chemicals (polish, thinners, paints, etc.), excess use of lawn chemicals, pesticides and garden chemicals, faulty or overladed septic tanks, or an accidental spill during an automobile driveway oil change, can wreak havoc with drinking water safety.
