SS297/SL159by Yilin Zhuang, Andrea Albertin, and Arthur G. HornsbyJune 30th, 2022Drinking water comes from a variety of sources, including public water systems, private wells, or bottled water. While public water systems are monitored under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act, private wells are not regulated. Private well users are responsible for the management and protection of their wells and water quality.

It also serves as a reference for well owners to understand their drinking water quality. Major revision by Yilin Zhuang, Andrea Albertin, and Arthur G. Hornsby; 10 pages.
