Ground water makes up more than 90 percent of the available fresh water in the United States and the world. Nearly 50 percent of the U.S. population relies on ground water for its drinking water supply. Ground water also feeds most surface water bodies such as rivers and lakes. Here are some steps any person can take to help protect ground water and reduce risks to the water supply, particularly if you are the owner of a household water well. Ground water protection: First, locate any abandoned wells on your property. Contact a qualified water well system contractor to determine whether the abandoned well has been properly decommissioned. An improperly abandoned well can be a direct pathway for contamination into the aquifer. Never dispose of any substance down an abandoned well. If the abandoned well has not been properly decommissioned, always use a qualified water well system contractor to do so. This requires special techniques, equipment, and materials. Second, if you have a septic system, have it check regularly by a quallfied septic system contractor. A failing septic system may present a contamination threat to the ground water. Third, properly use, store, and dispose of hazardous household substances. Hazardous household substances include, but are not limited to: * Gasoline and oil * Paints and paint thinner * Fertilizers * Weed killers * Pesticides * Cleaning products. Proper use means always following the manufacturer's instructions. Do not over apply fertilizers, pesticides, and weed killers. Also, do not apply or mix such substances close to the wellhead. Proper storage of hazardous household substances means keeping them in sealed containers in a secure place. Proper disposal of hazardous household substances means do not dump them on the ground, or pour them down the drain, or flush them down the toilet. Instead, contact local waste authorities about proper disposal. Proper well location and construction: Next, if you're planning to construct a water well, work with a water well system contractor or hydrogeologist to determine the best location for the well. Then use a qualified water well system contractor, who should be familiar with state and local well construction codes including those pertaining to separation distances from potential contamination sources. Regular well system maintenance: If you have an existing well, get an annual well system maintenance checkup to reduce risks to your water supply and prevent costly and inconvenient breakdowns. An inspection should check the well's: * Equipment to determine if it is sanitary and meets local codes Old Julian Drug Store , and Candy Mine ..... 2134 Main Street- (,760) 765 029,8 " V * Flow rate * Water level * Pump performance * Pressure tank * Pressure switch contacts. A clear, concise, written report should be provided following the checkup explaining the results and any recommendations for service. Also, every well owner should periodically check the well cover or cap, and the well casing above the ground to make sure they are in good shape. Water testing and treatment: One of a well owner's most important responsibilities is to regularly test the water. First, determine if your well is clean. A dirty well, for instance one with accumulated sediment or debris in the bottom, can create an environment suitable to bacterial growth and impair effective disinfection. A qualified water well system contractor can determine if your water well system needs cleaning. Next, well owners should test annually for bacteria, nitrates, and anything of local concern. The water should be tested more frequently if there is: * Any change in the water's taste, odor, or appearance * A problem such as a broken well cap or a new contamination source * A family member or houseguest who has recurrent incidents of gastrointestinal illness * A pregnant woman or infant living in the home ' * A dangerous contaminant shows up in your neighbors' water * A need to monitor the efficiency and performance of home water treatment eq uipment. Contaminants of local concern may include landfills, industrial sites, hazardous substance spills, or improper disposal of hazardous household wastes. Some naturally occurring contaminants, such as arsenic and radon, are area specific. To determine what might be of local concern, ask a qualified local water well system contractor or water treatment company, a certified water testing laboratory, or local health or environmental health officials. When seeking a qualified water testing lab, contact your state or local health department, or check the "Water Quality" section of NGWA's Web site, Then click on "Water Testing." If local labs do not test for substances you wish to check, there are national water testing labs that may be able to help such as National Testing Labs ( and Underwriters Laboratories ( Upon receiving test results, ask the lab if there are any contaminants that present a health risk-or check with the appropriate state or local agency involved in public health or water regulation. You also can check your test results against the U.S. EPA's maximum contaminant levels at safewater/contaminants/index. html. Should any contaminants above levels of health concern remain after any necessary maintenance, well owners can talk to a qualified water well system contractor about options such as installing a new well, rehabilitating the well, or installing a water treatment technology to continued on page 5 Wednesday, March 18th - 8:00 AM JULIAN WOMAN'S CLUB Everyone is welcome to attend!
