What is a site evaluation?

A well site evaluation is an inspection and written determination by the Health District that states whether a selected site is suitable for the construction of a new well, or whether an existing well is in a suitable site to serve as a sources of drinking water. During a well site evaluation, the land surrounding the proposed new well site is assessed for potential sources of contamination. For evaluations where the well already exists, the well’s visible construction is also assessed for potential problems.
