What can impact groundwater quality?
Forty-seven percent of the United States depend on groundwater for their basic drinking water supply. Having a basic understanding about groundwater quality will help ensure that your well is supplying potable water for your household.
Along with human activities, water quality is affected by a combination of natural processes. Most relate to chemical compositions underground. However, other factors such as biological, physical, and radiological conditions can affect water quality as well.Read more
How is a well disinfected?
Properly constructed and maintained water well systems are designed to keep microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and protozoa from getting inside the well system and into the water.
