We all know that there are serious problems with America’s water pipelines and infrastructure from coast to coast, so well water must be a better option, right?
Well, What’s the Truth?
Well water gives an impression of natural purity, untainted by miles of aging, contaminated pipework. After all, people have drunk well water for hundreds of years. Lots of us have grandparents who drank water from their own wells, and they all lived to a good old age, right? Aside from that, some people don’t have a choice – not everyone is joined up to a municipal water source.
Times have Changed
True, but things are different now. Fracking, construction and massive landfill sites didn’t exist in our grandparents’ day. Now, they disgorge dangerous elements into the ground, which are carried by rainwater into private wells.
What are the Risks?
Private wells are mainly fed by rainfall that has moved through the surface layers of soil and rocks, and hasn’t been used by the roots of plants and trees. It eventually hits a compacted, impermeable layer and gets no further. There are different types of well, dug to varying depths, but the basic rule is that the shallower the well, the higher the risk from contamination. What contamination? Well, depending on where you live, some of the following are possibilities:
- Rural livestock waste
- Decomposing wildlife
- Manure runoff
- Septic tanks
Also, rainwater itself can be contaminated. All of this doesn’t mean that your water just tastes bad; it can mean E-Coli, Hepatitis A, Salmonella and more. Most people have their well water tested and filtered, but with no regulation for private wells, people sadly still become ill as a result of drinking the water.
