Private Well Systems
It is the responsibility of the well owner to carry out a regular program of well maintenance to ensure well safety and understand well water quality. Taking care of your well is a three step process:
1. Protect your well water at the ground surface by avoiding, eliminating, or reducing contaminants.
2. Inspect your well regularly and keep your well in good running order.
3. Test your well water regularly and respond to water quality problems.
As a well owner, it is your responsibility to protect groundwater by being informed and Well Aware.
