Health officials say Groundwater Awareness Week is the perfect time to remind private well owners to test their well water.
They say you should test your water at least once a year.
Officials say contamination could come from not only the water but also the pipes that carry the water.
To prevent this issue, drill companies recommend having a professional put in your well.
If you want to get your well water tested you can contact your local health department.
