Well Water Treatment

What is well water and where does it come from?

While most common in rural communities, there are some smaller towns that also rely on well sources. Well water refers to any water that is sourced from an aquifer or groundwater source. These wells collect water that has seeped below the ground’s surface through the space in rock and other minerals to become part of the overall water table.

They differ from surface water sources in this journey taken through the ground to reach the water table. Surface water, by contrast, refers to water collected from lakes, rivers, or built reservoirs.

Is well water different than city water?

The short answer is yes.

Wells use the single, unregulated source of a private or semi-private well, and many wells are individually owned and maintained. City or municipal water, on the other hand, is managed and monitored by the city’s water board and may be sourced from one or more locations. City water is also heavily regulated, regularly tested, and may come with additives like chlorine or fluoride, depending on where you live. Well water treatment, typically, has none of these characteristics.
