Is your well protected from your septic system?
One of the easiest ways to protect well water from pollution is to check your septic system and carry out septic tank cleaning in Wilmington NC. Septic systems can pollute wells when they are placed too close to the well, are not properly maintained, or have not been properly installed. The major contaminants from septic systems that enter wells are disease-causing germs. These invisible germs such as bacteria and viruses can cause many human diseases. Another potential contaminant that can come >from septic systems is nitrogen in the form of nitrate-nitrogen. If the nitrate level of your well water is too high, the water can be hazardous to infants in their first six months of life, and other human health problems can arise.
