´╗┐Administration of Wells for Drinking Water

Slide 2

Possible Well Contaminants Fertilizers Pesticides Septic frameworks Animal bolster parts Leaking fuel stockpiling tanks

Slide 3

Slide 4

Conditions Around the Well Contamination of groundwater is more probable if soils are: shallow (a couple of feet above bedrock). very permeable (sandy or gravely). Shallow soil implies contaminants don't have far to go to reach groundwater. On the off chance that bedrock is broken water leaks quickly. This can build pollution.

Slide 5

Well Age If your well is more than 20 years of age, have it assessed for deformities. Wells more than 50 years of age will probably be defiled because of: poor development. more slender housings that might be broken and spilling greasing up oils.

Slide 6

Dug and Driven-Point Wells Dug wells are: Large measurement openings that are normally more than 2 feet wide. Shallow and for the most part developed by hand. Driven-point wells are: Installed just in territories with free soil. Built by driving lengths of pipe into the ground.

Slide 7

Drilled Wells Are regular in Kentucky. Are the to the least extent liable to wind up debased of the three sorts of wells. Have set development models in Kentucky. Must be penetrated by an ensured well driller.

Slide 8

Well Casing and Cap Casing ought to be: 12 inches or more over the surface and 1-2 feet above surge level. Investigated occasionally for splits. Top ought to be: Firmly connected to packaging and have a vent to permit air to enter. Firmly connected to the vent, with the vent confronting the ground and appropriately screened.

Slide 9

Slide 10
