Understanding and Remedying Your Well Problems

Presented on Wednesday, November 30, 2011

This workshop addresses the problems you encounter on a daily basis and solutions, along with an understanding of the natural aquifer (location of bacteria as slime formers, iron bacteria, coliform, and E. coli). You will learn: what pumping a well does in this context; what role development plays with iron bacteria and slime formers; the cause of corrosion in wells and simple solutions; what standard lab tests to run locally to better understand coliform problems; specific steps used to identify E. coli and fecal coliform in wells; why the least effective biocide for coliform is your standard chlorine; what to do when you have two failures using chlorine.
