Environmental Laboratories and Private Wells

Why You Should Care about Private Wells

  • The laboratory professional should know the basics of how wells work and the potential water quality problems caused by well construction and local geology.
  • The laboratory professional should understand how to communicate with well owners and help them understand why it's important to sample and be able to guide them through the process.
  • The laboratory professional should be aware of local support options for well owners and be able to provide referrals to local professionals (public or private) in conjunction with results interpretation and next steps.
