What types of properties are subject to the well testing requirement?
The Act covers SALES of two types of properties, and LEASES of other properties. Testing is required for the following: 1) SALE of any property that gets its drinking water from a private well located on the property, and 2) SALE of any property that gets its drinking water from a well that has less than 15 service connections or that does not regularly serve an average of at least 25 people daily at least 60 days out of each year. 3) Leasing of any property that gets its drinking water from a private well that isn’t required to be tested under to any other State law.
What will happen if the testing is not done? Will the property sale be void?
Testing of your well water is important to your family’s health. If testing is not done, you and your family may face a health risk and not know it. You may also be subject to enforcement action.
Does the testing requirement apply to drinking water wells at newly constructed residences?
Yes, if the property is being sold or leased.
What contaminants must the well water be tested for?
That depends on where you live. All wells must be tested for the following contaminants: total coliform bacteria, iron, manganese, pH, all volatile organic compounds (VOCs) with established Maximum Contaminant Levels, nitrate, and lead. If total coliform bacteria are detected, a test must also be conducted for fecal coliform or E. coli. Private wells located in certain counties will also have to test for arsenic, mercury and 48-hour rapid gross alpha particle activity. Contact one of our representatives to discuss testing requirements in your area.
