Links and Resources on Well Water Quality

For a long time, many wells were not usable at a reasonable cost, but AWPI’s ozone based well water purification systems have changed that, so I wanted to share some additional resources on well water quality from such sources as the Centers for Disease Control, Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Geological Survey.

With water prices rapidly rising and no end in site to the price increases, I hope we can all educate ourselves and start utilizing well water as never before. The following links are a great place to start.
