Considering Geological Factors
When determining the location for your well, geological factors must first be taken into consideration. Land surface features such as steep slopes will have an impact on determining where to best locate your well. Ideally, wells should be drilled in higher elevations and away from poorly drained areas in order to avoid potential contamination.
In addition to choosing a geological area to help prevent contamination, the location of the well must also be located away from potential contaminants. Some general industry guidelines regarding distance away from specific contaminants are as follows:
- Septic drain field: 100 feet
- Landfill or garbage dump: 200 feet
- Outer boundary of a road: 20 feet
- Property boundary: 10 feet
- Septic tank, foundation drain or tile sewer: 50 feet
- Structure (house, barn, outbuilding, etc..)
The well should also be located in an area that is easily accessible for inspection, cleaning, testing, treatment and repair. This means putting it in an area that is kept clear from debris, including natural debris such as trees and overgrown plants.
