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:
