Well inspection program

Prior to the City providing water supplies and sewer services, residents obtained their water from private wells and removed waste through septic systems located on their property. Some of these wells and systems exist today. 

According to state law, all wells not currently in use must be sealed, and all septic tanks not currently in use must be pumped out and crushed or removed.
