Well Sampling Information
Most private wells provide a safe and uncontaminated source of drinking water. Some wells do however become contaminated with bacteria. Fortunately certified labs can easily test water for coliform bacteria, a common indicator of bacterial contamination in wells.
To ensure your well is not contaminated, it is a good idea to regularly test your water. You should have your water tested at least annually and whenever you notice a change in the taste, odor or color of the water.
