Back in 2013, a whole community here in Auburn California suffered toxic wells. Their drinking water was contaminated with high levels of Coliform bacteria, as noted in the Auburn Journal on October 16, 2013. Read more here.
The Auburn Valley Country Club now has their own staff to constantly monitor their wells. Who is monitoring your well?
For Auburn residents who have their own private well, you too run that same risk. Could you be unaware that your well is contaminated? Have you tested your well water? How do I go about this?
I have seen more wells testing positive for bacteria then I have in years. If you want to discuss this more or have questions regarding your property, and your well in particular, please give me a call at (530) 745-0627.
