This case is regarding a well inside a pit that is very susceptible to ground water, drainage, insects, and animals. Likely affects to the drinking water will be bacteria, nitrates or nitrites, volatile organic chemicals and other types of substances harmful to public health. This condition has become a state requirement and remedied by raising the top of the well above ground level.
The well pump, wire, and piping were pulled out of the well. The metal well casing is fitted with a water tight coupling used to attach an extension, raising the well above ground level. The well is then disinfected and flushed. New wiring from the well to the house was pulled through conduit and electrically tied in to the existing system. A new water tight well cap and electrical conduit to raise the wiring up was installed. The pit was then abandoned and filled with soil.
