GROUNDWATER WELL OWNER ANNUAL CHECKLIST

  • Always use licensed or certified water well drillers and pump installers when a well is constructed, a pump is installed or the system is serviced.
  • An annual well maintenance check, including a bacterial test, is recommended. Any source of drinking water should be checked any time there is a change in taste, odor or appearance, or anytime a water supply system is serviced.
  • Periodically check the well cover or well cap on top of the casing (well) to ensure it is secured properly and in good repair.
  • Always maintain proper separation between your well and buildings, waste systems or chemical storage facilities. Do not build over your well. The well must be serviceable at all times.
  • When landscaping, keep the top of your well at least one foot above the ground. Slope the ground away from your well for proper drainage.
  • Take care in working or mowing around your well. A damaged casing could jeopardize the sanitary protection of your well. Don’t pile snow, leaves, or other materials around your well.
  • Keep your well records in a safe place. These include the construction report, as well as annual water well system maintenance and water testing results.
  • Be aware of changes in your well, the area around your well, or the water it provides.
  • Joseph H. Huemann & Sons Well Drilling, Pump Sales and Service will properly seal and abandon your old well after constructing your new system as required by your state and local health departments
How can we help you?

We believe that every water well owner should be completely informed on the technical aspects of groundwater maintenance, well construction and the pumping system.

We are open and running service calls to homes. We want to be there in case of emergencies and make sure we keep our customers safe and comfortable at home. We also need to take caution to protect our team members and make sure they stay healthy as well. When you call in, our office staff will be asking if anyone in the home has a fever, been diagnosed or had exposure to the virus. We also ask if anyone has traveled the last month. We need to know so that we can be proactive with our team’s response and level of protection. We will have team members who do not want to be exposed to a high-risk customer and we will respect those wishes.

Please be patient with our team so that we can take the best care of you and all our customers. We intend to limit our time in groups as we have canceled all group meetings until further notice. Technicians already work in isolation for most of the day and are not exposed to large groups during work. We will be limiting face to face interaction between our office team members and field team members. Huemann Well Drilling is ready to help with service anytime you need us.
