Well Water Information



Wells that are properly constructed and maintained can provide many years of uninterrupted water. By following Iowa's state regulations for well construction, conducting routine maintenance, and watching out for signs of contamination, you can extend the life of your well and improve the quality of your water supply.

For any additional questions or information, please contact one of the Environmental Health Specialists at Johnson County Public Health at (319) 356-6040.
