If any problems arise during the evaluation, it will be recommended that a licensed well driller be contacted to make the necessary repairs.

Tips for Maintaining a Healthy Well

Properly maintained private water wells can provide property owners with a safe and convenient water supply year after year.

  • If the well head is damaged, contact a licensed well driller for immediate repairs.  Damaged well heads can allow contamination.
  • It is recommended that well water be tested annually for coliform bacteria and nitrates.
  • Keep a log of your well water tests, noting dates and results.
  • If you suspect your well is contaminated, do not drink the water.  Contact Environmental Evaluations.

For more information about caring for your water well system and water well testing, please contact your local health department.
