Well & Septic

Maintenance 

Because drinking wells are a direct link to our groundwater, it’s important to keep in mind what materials and objects we bring into close proximity to them. Many common and necessary household chemicals can impact the safety of your well water, and it’s especially important to consider the location of your septic system if you have one.

 

Refer to this helpful well-siting diagram based on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations and check out our resources section for more information!
