Testing the quality of a water well is the responsibility of the property owner. This should be done at least once a year as contaminants from the soil as well as bacteria can find their way into the well and affect the taste and safety of the water. The water should also be tested after a flood or if a change is flavor and/or appearance of the water is noted. The testing may be done with a do-it-yourself kit, but if results show contamination, a qualified professional should be contacted. Powell and Murphy Drilling can help you with your well issues.
