Domestic Well Safety Program

For most Oregon residents, accessing clean and safe water is as simple as turning on the faucet. For others, (approximately 23%) who rely on private domestic wells for their drinking water, this task does not come as easily. Man-made and naturally occurring contaminants can be present in Oregon’s drinking water. Without testing, one cannot be certain that water from their private domestic well is safe.

The best way to know if your well water is safe is to get it tested!

Not sure if your drinking water comes from a private well? If you don’t receive a water bill, it is likely your drinking water comes from a private well.

For more information about testing and treating your well, please contact the Benton County Environmental Health Department or call 541-766-6841
