Abandoned well

From WikiMD's free health, diet & wellness encyclopedia
(Redirected from Abandoned Well)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A well whose use has been permanently discontinued or which is in a state of such disrepair that no water can be produced.

State law

Because abandonment is a state that also involves intent on the part of the well owner, a definition that prescribes a set of conditions and a time limit for use in applying standards are set by state statute in the United States.

Contamination risk

Abandoned wells pose a groundwater quality concern because they provide a vertical conduit for contamination of the aquifer.

Proper destruction

In the United States, state law (Health and Safety Code Section 115700) requires that all “permanently inactive wells” or abandoned wells be properly destroyed.
