Ground Water Awareness for Well Owners and Ground Water Professionals

Educating well owners and ground water professionals is one of our top priorities.

Use these simple tips to protect ground water.

  • Ensure pollutants cannot enter the underground aquifer through failed wastewater treatment systems (septic tank or drain field), around well fields, or wellhead contamination.
  • Do not place pollutants, pesticides, or hazardous materials near a well.
  • Keep a “clean” zone of at least 50 feet between your well, kennels, and livestock operations.
Preventative maintenance of your well is essential and is usually less costly than emergency maintenance. It can prolong the life of the well and the well equipment.

  • Annually, test your well water for coliform bacteria, nitrates, and anything else of local concern.
  • Inspect the water system to determine if the equipment is working properly, assure it is sanitary, and verify it meets local code.
  • Check the well cap or seal to ensure a proper seal protects the aquifer from insects and rodents. Wellhead flooding should also be noted.

Well owners: An annual water well checkup is the best way for you to do your part to protect valuable water resources. Contact a qualified well driller or pump installer to ensure problem-free service and quality water.
