You Haven’t Had Your Well Water Tested? Here’s Why It Is Time

Your water tastes great, no smell, no taste and you’ve never had a problem with it. We hear all the time, “I have the best water around”. In some instances that may be true. However, it doesn’t mean your water doesn’t contain dangerous contaminants.

There is no regulations for homeowners to have their wells tested, so it is up to the homeowners to do so. The EPA (United States Environmental Protection Agency) has outlined several key situations where water should be tested more frequently (more than once a year).

  • someone in your household is pregnant or nursing
  • there are unexplained illnesses in the family
  • your neighbors find a dangerous contaminant in their water
  • you note a change in water taste, odor, color or clarity
  • there is a spill of chemicals or fuels into or near your well
  • when you replace or repair any part of your well system

In addition to the situations where testing is advised to do so more frequently, you can do your own inspection as well for possible contaminants:

  • is there livestock close by?
  • are pesticides being used on nearby agricultural?
  • do you use lawn fertilizers near the well?
  • is the well located near a road that is frequently salted or sprayed with de-icers during winter months?
