Private Wells & Septic Systems

We support homeowners and public health officials with private well and septic system assessments, education on maintenance, and best practices to ensure private water sources are safe.

More Information

It’s a good practice to assess your wellhead several times a year, checking the well covering, casing, and well cap to make sure all are in good repair, with no entry points for pollutants.

  • You should also have the entire well system inspected every 10 years by a qualified well driller or pump installer.

  • If you have no inspection record and cannot determine the age of the well, have it inspected immediately by a water well professional.

  • RCAP Solutions can provide you with an on-site, professional review of your wellhead and the recharge area in order to determine well maintenance needs.

  • Well vulnerabilities are evaluated based on well specifications, nearby environmental threats, geology and contamination issues in the area.

In addition, we highly recommend private well homeowners get their water tested regularly.
