Please consider properly plugging all unused or unneeded water wells! Not only a hazard to personal safety, but old supply wells are also a site of point source pollution to the groundwater. Abandoned wells are not up to the current code and are typically in poor condition, left standing open. These wells pose a risk to our drinking water because they can be a direct pathway for chemicals and contaminated water to enter the deeper aquifers that are normally protected. Help protect groundwater and our water quality by plugging unneeded wells!
Cost-share funds are available. Contact our office at (712) 328-5792 for more details.
