Abandoned Wells: Creating Serious Health Concerns
Many properties in Idaho and Utah still contain abandoned wells. While this may not initially seem like much of a concern, the reality is that abandoned wells can create serious health risks.

Of course, there are also concerns regarding the possibility of a person or an animal getting accidentally caught in an abandoned well. Therefore, if you have an abandoned well on your property, it is essential that you take the proper steps to decommission the well.
