About Private Drinking Water Wells
EPA estimates that more than 23 million households rely on private wells for drinking water in the United States (August 2021). EPA does not regulate private wells nor does it provide recommended criteria or standards for individual wells. EPA offers information regarding the importance of testing private wells and guidance on technologies that may be used to treat or remove any contaminants.
Private well owners can be described as homeowners and groups of homeowners with well(s) that serve fewer than 25 people and contain less than 15 service connections. Private well owners are responsible for the safety of their water, which results in difficulty accessing technical assistance from water professionals and can lead to water quality and quantity issues.
