Sealing of Abandoned Wells

All of the residents of the District use groundwater for their homes. Several boil water advisories in the area have lead to public water systems which also draw water from the ground prior to treatment and distribution to the homes. Water is a precious commodity for life, therefore, since 1994 the District has sealed wells to protect our groundwater.
 
The District hopes to eventually seal all old and unused wells. Once the landowners have filled in a Well Sealing Application and pay a fee for a portion of this service, the District arranges for an inspection, delivery of materials, sealing, and follows through with the required reporting.
