Drinking Water

Your Well Water

This booklet series describes what private well owners can do to maintain clean, safe drinking water from their well to protect their health.

Note - On page 3 under "Test Well Yield", accessible drilled wells only need to be tested for one hour with one hour recovery. The test should not be repeated. Inaccessible wells require two tests, separated by 24 hours.
