By practicing regular well maintenance, you’ll find problems early and correct them before they get out of hand. It’s so easy to forget the value of good maintenance until you have a crisis. It’s also a good idea to take steps to reduce erosion to prevent surface water runoff and to routinely check underground storage tanks that hold home heating oil, diesel, or gasoline.

Keep up-to-date records of well installation, repairs, as well as pumping and water tests. By having a detailed record of the work done on your systems, you’ll be able to spot changes and possible problems with your water system.

As a well owner, you’ll also need to be conscious of protecting your own well area. Be cautious about storage and disposal of chemicals and wastes. If you’re an avid gardener, make sure to minimize the use of fertilizers and pesticides. It’s not just about chemicals, also make sure your well is protected from the wastes of livestock, pets, and wildlife.
