Water Quality Testing

Due to unpredictable weather and other factors, it's not uncommon for natural elements to gather near your well head. 

 

That could be due to:

  • Fall foliage 

  • Wind knocking branches down near the well head

  • Animals, domestic or wild, leaving...ahem...deposits

  • Wind-blown tree needles

  • Snow accumulation

  • Heavy rainfall

  • Irrigation

  • Standing water

  • Household chemicals getting near the well head

  • Well heads that are less than 18" from the ground

Any of these factors can "seep" into the soil, soon making it's way into the water source and contaminating the water.  Without the properly maintained safeguards, this can be a potential hazard to your potable water.

We recommend an annual water quality check to ensure that you're getting the best water available to you through your well.

There are various tests for your well. 

The links below describe each, as well as methods of remedy.

Coliform bacteria is a common bacteria found in Colorado well water.  It can enter your well water from sewage overflows, a malfunctioning sewage system.  Flooding, long periods of standing groundwater, and fires are also a common cause for coliform bacteria to enter into your well water.  Colorado gov't agencies highly recommend testing annually for coliform.

     Treatment

     Typically a chlorination or "well shock" process is used.  Click here for a quick description.
