Well operation and maintenance
Proper operation and maintenance of a well helps ensure the availability of safe drinking, bathing, and wash water.
Testing and disinfecting a well

If water tests show “unsatisfactory” results, shock chlorination may be used to remove any existing bacterial contamination from the system.Use the links below for information on operating, testing and disinfecting a well.
