  • The well has a history of bacterial contamination
  • The septic system has recently malfunctioned
  • Family members or house guests have recurrent incidents of gastrointestinal illness
  • An infant is living in the home, or
  • To monitor the efficiency and performance of home water treatment equipment.

West Virginia 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.

West Virginia is found in the South, along with these other states: Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky.

The last American Housing Survey Census indicates this region had 4,360,0002 households served by residential wells, with an average of 2.443 persons per household. The USGS estimates the population of self-supplied water supply users in West Virginia to be 392,000, with 100% of their water supply from groundwater.

  • 153 community water systems use groundwater for 243,700 people
  • 73 non-community, non-transient water systems use groundwater for 28,700 people
  • 332 non-community, transient water systems use groundwater for 25,400 people
  • 150 irrigation wells used serving 119 farms and 821 acres
