  • Pesticides are used for a variety of purposes in both suburban and rural communities. Surface water runoff can carry pesticides from agricultural fields, golf courses and park into lakes, streams and groundwater. Improperly disposed pesticides can also flow into water sources. Rain and snow can further expand the contamination into snow. These pesticides can end up in groundwater, especially if the well is near a location where pesticides are regularly used.


  • If you’re buying a home, there are so many things to consider and inspections that need to be done. If you’re looking at a home with a private well, however, there’s an extra inspection not to overlook that’s very important to your family’s health: a well water test.


  • If a home’s well water supply has naturally-occurring contaminants, it doesn’t have to be a deal breaker for buyers. Issues like minerals, metals and sediment in water can often be easily resolved without spending a fortune. To be able to assess the severity, and likely expense, of water quality issues, a skilled real estate agent should have a basic understanding of the types of water treatment and filtration systems out there today.
