Well Water Tip Sheet - September 2016
The Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP) is seeking additional private well owners to receive an in-person water well assessment completed at the well using a new assessment tool.
The assessment tool will help a well owner understand the potential risks and vulnerabilities that might impact the drinking water. It considers site conditions, geology, land use practices, well construction, and maintenance. RCAP will not be opening the well or sampling from the tap.
To nominate your well for an assessment, please send an email to Steve Wilson at email@example.com with the well owner name, email address, and telephone number along with the well location.
In the event of a flood emergency, please consider the following information:
