Groundwater Awareness Week: March 8-14, 2015

"Time to schedule your annual water well checkup!"

Just as you check your furnace or smoke detector batteries seasonally, spring is a good season to have an annual water well checkup before the peak water use season begins, according to the National Ground Water Association (NGWA).

Why is it a good idea to have my water well checked annually?

An annual checkup by a qualified water well contractor is the best way to ensure problem-free service and quality water.

Also, preventative maintenance usually is less costly than emergency maintenance, and good well maintenance — like good car maintenance — can prolong the life of your well and related equipment. NGWA further recommends you test your water whenever there is a change in taste, odor, or appearance, or when the system is serviced.

ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH DIVISION

The safety of everyday activities can be taken for granted quite easily.  Visiting a public pool or playground, eating dinner at a restaurant, or going on a stroll through your mosquito-free neighborhood... These are just a few subtle activities made possible in part by the duties of Environmental Division employees at the Medina County Health Department.  Sanitarians and inspectors build relationships with residents, business owners, and contractors and assure regulatory compliance through education, risk assessment, communication, prevention and, when necessary, enforcement.
 

We are here to protect you!
