Those with well water have to monitor the condition of their well, and the quality of the water it provides. The routine maintenance of a private well is required to ensure the delivery of safe, clean drinking water. There are minimal standards in place for privately owned wells established by the National Ground Water Association (NGWA) to help ensure clean water.
The NGWA recommends that private wells be inspected each year and that routine testing is provided for contaminants. The NGWA goes further and recommends homeowners be aware of symptoms of illness related to contaminated water such as frequent gastrointestinal illness, a change in how the water appears, as well as unusual taste or odors.
