During times of low water conditions (e.g. drought, climate change) contaminants may have more direct access to your well. Not only is there a risk of running out of water but the quality of your well water may be adversely affected.
Hastings Prince Edward Public Health recommends testing your well water a minimum of once per season to ensure your water is safe to consume. Test your water more often if you have a history of adverse results or if there is a change in the quantity and/or quality of your drinking water. For information on testing your well water visit the Drinking Water page on the HPEPH website.
