About 15% of the population have personal wells. Although it has been estimated that less than 2% of the groundwater in the U.S. is contaminated, well owners should be concerned about water quality. The booklet outlines potential ground water contamination sources, how to determine and maintain the adequacy of drinking water from wells, and what to do to remedy any problems with water from personal wells.
