The Environmental Health Unit will provide technical assistance to property owners regarding their private water supply. Water supply sources include dug or drilled wells, ponds, and springs.
Testing & Advice
If necessary, we can provide instructions to disinfect your well or recommend additional testing to be performed by a private certified lab. We can also help you make an informed decision on whether or not you need to drill a new well, add water treatment, or upgrade your existing treatment system to better serve your needs.
If you choose to install or are required to install continuous disinfection, your choices are chlorination or ultraviolet light. If your home is supplied with surface water or a shallow dug well, it is recommended that filtration be installed.
