The association recommends annual testing to eliminate health risks

Bacteria and nitrate are widespread in the environment, so every household water well owner should regularly test his or her water to make sure no health risk exists, the National Ground Water Assn. (NGWA) recommended.

While most bacteria found in water do not cause disease, disease-causing bacteria called pathogens can exist in well water given the right circumstances, NGWA said. Nitrate is not uncommon to rural areas due to its use in fertilizers and because it is sometimes linked to animal or human waste.

New wells will provide early alerts for groundwater contamination

Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) began drilling “sentinel” wells at the first of three locations in the Trumbull Village neighborhood in Albuquerque, N.M., to provide early alerts for groundwater contamination.

These new sentinel wells will provide early warning if there is a northeastward movement of the Kirtland Air Force Base Bulk Fuels Facility plume, and would provide Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority (ABCWUA) and Air Force officials lead time to implement plans to protect nearby groundwater drinking water supply wells.

NGWA Urges Water Well Owners to Address Abandoned Wells

Abandoned water wells may be the pathway for surface contamination into drinking water aquifers

Household water well owners should act to address any improperly abandoned wells on their properties, as they can present threats to both people and animals, the National Ground Water Assn. (NGWA) said.

"Abandoned wells can be a physical danger to people and animals who may fall into them, but an even greater threat may be the pathway that an abandoned well provides for surface contamination into an aquifer used for drinking water," said Cliff Treyens, NGWA's public awareness director.

It is estimated that there are millions of abandoned wells and drilled holes in the U.S.
