|These simple steps will help
protect your system and investment:
use licensed or certified water well
drillers and pump installers when a well
is constructed, a pump is installed or
the system is serviced.
annual well maintenance check, including
a bacterial test, is recommended. Any
source of drinking water should be
checked any time there is a change in
taste, odor or appearance, or anytime a
water supply system is serviced.
hazardous chemicals, such as paint,
fertilizer, pesticides, and motor oil
far away from your well.
Periodically check the well cover or
well cap on top of the casing (well) to
ensure it is in good repair.
maintain proper separation between your
well and buildings, waste systems or
chemical storage facilities. Your
professional contractor knows the rules.
allow back-siphonage. When mixing
pesticides, fertilizers or other
chemicals, don't put the hose inside the
tank or container.
landscaping, keep the top of your well
at least one foot above the ground.
Slope the ground away from your well for
care in working or mowing around your
well. A damaged casing could jeopardize
the sanitary protection of your well.
Don't pile snow, leaves, or other
materials around your well.
your well records in a safe place. These
include the construction report, as well
as annual water well system maintenance
and water testing results.
aware of changes in your well, the area
around your well, or the water it
your well has come to the end of its
serviceable life (usually more than 20
years), have your qualified water well
contractor properly decommission your
well after constructing your new system.
