Health Unit Urges Well Owners to Test Their Water and Conserve Water During Continuing Drought Conditions
With many of our conservation authorities declaring moderate to severe drought conditions across Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Counties, the Health Unit would like to inform well owners of risks to their well water supply. During times of prolonged drought, wells can be susceptible to contamination due to varying water levels. As water levels in the water table drop, some wells may draw contaminants from further away into your drinking water supply. In addition, soil may compact and pull away from well casings making them vulnerable to runoff when it does rain. In times of drought, well owners may notice changes in their water supply including quality and quantity.
