CARING FOR YOUR PRIVATE WELL
How Often To Test?
Dug Wells - at least four (4) times per year
Drilled Wells - at least one (1) time per year
Water Quality - may fluctuate due to changes in the water table or a change in water usage. If there is a noticeable change in your water quality, a chemical test, as well as a bacteria test, is recommended.
Your well can be contaminated by:
Openings in the well seal
Improperly installed well casing
Well casing not deep enough
Well casing not sealed
A remote source of contamination not related to well construction
Make sure that:
Sanitary seal or well cap is securely in place and water-tight
Cap is at least 12 inches above the ground
Joints, cracks and connections in the well casing are sealed
Surface water does not pond near the well
Well pump and distribution systems are checked regularly
Changes in the quantity and quality of water are investigated immediately
Your well casing/cap should look like pictures shown below:
