Is Your Well Water Safe to Drink?
We all need water - and we all need clean water. About 15 percent of Americans
have their own sources of drinking water, such as wells, cisterns, and
springs. Unlike public drinking water systems serving many people, though,
they do not have experts regularly checking the water’s source and
its quality before it is dispersed and captured as drinking water. If
you do not get your well water tested yearly, you run the risk of drinking
In addition, if the well cap on your well is broken or removed, your drinking
water is most likely contaminated by harmful bacteria and viruses, feces,
fertilizers and other harmful pollutants. Therefore, complete and proper
disinfection of your well and water system is a necessity.
