Well Sealing Twin Cities
What is well sealing exactly? Well sealing is the permanent closure of a well that is no longer in use or is deemed unsafe. The state law in Minnesota requires all abandoned wells to be sealed. Why? An unused well can act as a drain, allowing surface runoff, polluted water and improperly disposed of waste contaminate groundwater. They can also be quite unsafe. That’s why, if you have an unused or abandoned well on your property, you should take care of it as soon as possible. And, as experts in well sealing for the Twin Cities, Hartmann Well Drilling can get the job done right the first time.
Old and abandoned wells are a hazard and danger to health, the environment and safety. It is also important that a well sealing is done properly by professionals. If it has not been performed by a licensed contractor, like the ones at Hartmann Well Drilling, the threat of contamination is very real and very prevalent. Even if the well is covered by concrete or wooden boards, it can still be a problem. The cover can decay or break down, surface debris can enter the old well and that, in turn, can contaminate the groundwater.
There are many reasons you may require well sealing services, including:
- A well is not currently in use
- The well has become contaminated
- It’s been improperly sealed in the past
- It poses a threat to public safety
- The well threatens groundwater quality
Whatever the reason, Hartmann Well Drilling can help. Give us a call today and we can get your well sealing underway.
