WELL WATER QUALITY & SAFETY
Surface Contamination Seepage ?
What’s In Your Well ?
Did you know many older water wells in Ontario are not up to today’s M.O.E (Ministry of Environment) standards.
These wells are at high risk for surface contamination such as coliforms, e‑coli, and other pollutants, affecting the health of everything that drinks from the well.
Many of these wells are dug or created from older obsolete methods.

Problem Wells & Shock Chlorination
Bacteria such as iron-related (IRB) and sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) are common contaminates that may coat the inside of the well casing, water piping and pumping equipment, creating problems such as :
- plugging of water treatment equipment
- reduced well yield
- restricted water flow in distribution lines
- “rotten egg” odour which may produce small amounts of acid that can corrode the well casing and pumping equipment
- staining of plumbing fixtures and laundry
Increased corrosion of the metal parts of the well and distribution system is also an indicator.
