If you have been following the news, you've probably heard about the contaminated western rivers from the abandoned Colorado mine last week. As the latest article states, "It's been a week since a toxic flood of heavy metals, arsenic and other materials from the Gold King Mine spilled into the waterway, turning it a vibrant mustard color."

The Threats Connecticut May Face

So what can Connecticut residents learn from this incident? While our state is not known as a "mining" state, Connecticut is full or agriculture and industrial areas, which can pose the same threat.  As we have mentioned in many other blogs, the location of your home should promote annual water testing from homeowners all around. There are no mandatory regulations for Connecticut homeowners, so it's up to residents to get their water tested each and every year.

Contamination can come from businesses such as farms, industrial mills and other businesses who use chemicals, fertilizers and other possible contaminats that pose the potential risk to enter the ground from water run off and threaten the safety and health of drinking water from wells.

Aqua Pump has proudly served Connecticut and residents with their water testing needs for over 40 years. Along with that experience, comes the knowledge of possible threats and issues homeonwers have in each and every town.
