Well Water Systems

Well Aware Program

As a private water well owner, it is your job to be well aware — to understand the basics of well maintenance and operation, and to take the necessary action to keep your well in safe running order.

Well Aware conducts free home visits by a trained Water Advisor to help rural well owners identify priorities for action to protect their drinking water source.  The visits, which are voluntary, confidential, and non-regulatory, guide you through a self-assessment to help identify and address potential risks to your well water.

What will You gain?

  • information on how best to protect your water
  • recommendations about your well, at your well
  • a written report containing the information and recommendations discussed at the visit
  • local resources that specifically address your needs
  • ability to talk about your well with an independent, trained guide
