Abstract

If you own a private well, you have the responsibility to maintain the well in good condition and keep it operating properly so it provides you with water that is safe to drink. Many well problems can be reduced or eliminated by timely well inspection and maintenance. In the long run, preventive maintenance often saves more money than overlooking potential problems. With most of a well below the surface, well owners can only inspect above ground, focusing on these common well inspection points to ensure the protection of the well and drinking water.
