How to Disinfect a Contaminated Well

Drinking water is usually obtained from the groundwater table through the establishment of a dug well constructed of concrete tile rings (as shown below), a drilled well, or a Sandpoint well - the latter two being constructed of steel piping.  In order to protect your well, contaminated water from tile drains, livestock operations and roof eaves must be directed away from it.

Water in a dug well which is of brick construction, is susceptible to contamination unless the joints between each course of brick are sealed (down to a depth of 3 m or 10 feet).
