3 - Keep Records
Maintain information about your well installation, repairs, pump tests and water quality tests. A permanent file or notebook is suggested.
The well should be uphill from potential contamination sources, such as heating oil tanks and septic drain fields. Contact the
Mecklenburg County Groundwater & Wastewater System if you are going to site a new septic system or repairing an existing septic system.
Keep active pasture and animal enclosures at least 50 feet from a drilled well. Shield animal waste from rain. Fence off animal access to your well.
The groundwater guardian program is designed to empower local citizens and communities to take voluntary steps to protect the groundwater in their community. The program supports, recognizes and connects communities across the United States.
