Well operation and maintenance

Proper operation and maintenance of a well helps ensure the availability of safe drinking, bathing, and wash water.

If water tests show “unsatisfactory” results, shock chlorination may be used to remove any existing bacterial contamination from the system.Use the links below for information on operating, testing and disinfecting  a well.
