Frequently Asked Questions
What is a well cap?
The cap covering a well may be a small part of the overall household water well system, but it is an extremely important one.
A properly installed well cap separates potential pollutants from your drinking water. The cap, which should be sealed tightly at all times, keeps out everything from liquid contaminants to bugs that can crawl inside a well and wreak havoc.Read more
What are some routine maintenance practices for water well pumps?
Routine maintenance and inspection of water wells and well pump systems can help protect water quality, ensure your well is operating properly, prolong the useful life of the well system, and protect your investment. The greatest of all these is the protection of your health, as water quality issues can have adverse health impacts without any detectable indicators.Read more
What are the main components of a water well system?
The primary components of water well systems include casing, well caps, well screens, and pitless adapters.
Casing is the tubular structure that is placed in the drilled well to maintain the well opening. Along with grout, the casing keeps possibly contaminated surficial water from reaching the aquifer zone underground and prevents contaminants from mixing with the water. The casing also holds back unstable earth materials so that they do not collapse into the well. Some states or local governing agencies have laws that require minimum lengths for casing.
Massachusetts Groundwater and Water Well Statistics
Few states can accurately or confidentially determine how many residential wells are in place. For each region, the American Housing Survey by the U.S. Census provides regional data.
Massachusetts is found in the Northeast, along with these other states: Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
The last American Housing Survey Census indicates this region had 3,210,0002 households served by residential wells, with an average of 2.543 persons per household. The USGS estimates the population of self-supplied water supply users in Massachusetts to be 616,000, all of which use groundwater.
- 346 community water systems use groundwater for 1,739,000 people
- 253 non-community, non-transient water systems use groundwater for 69,000 people
- 904 non-community, transient water systems use groundwater for 131,800 people
- 1,090 irrigation wells used serving 691 farms and 7,920 acres
