TIPS FOR MAINTAINING YOUR WELL
Use it, Maintain it or Abandon it

Well Head PictureWhen it comes to wells the best policy is "use it, maintain it, or abandon it". Why?

These old wells are a threat to our health and safety. Besides the risk to our drinking water supply and groundwater, unused wells also pose a physical hazard to people and animals.
Well water protection begins at home. Old wells must be properly "closed or decommissioned"; Closing a well means to permanently seal a well so it cannot be used again and no delirious materials can seep into the aquifer.

The physicist saw the ocean and was fascinated by the waves. He said he wanted to do some research on the fluid dynamics of the waves and walked into the ocean. Obviously he was drowned and never returned.

The biologist said he wanted to do research on the flora and fauna inside the ocean and walked inside the ocean. He too, never returned.

The chemist waited for a long time and afterwards, wrote the observation, "The physicist and the biologist are soluble in ocean water".
