Private Well Ownership
Helpful information about private well ownership.
When purchasing a home in Indian Hills - find out if the house is served with Indian Hills Water District "public water" or if there are any private wells on the property. If the home is on a private well, always request water test results to include Nitrates.
EPA indicates a safe Nitrate level is less than 10 mg/L https://www.epa.gov/ground-water-and-drinking-water/table-regulated-drinking-water-contaminants
Here is a great site with lots of information from Jefferson County Public Health on Water Quality and Wells. http://jeffco.us/public-health/water-quality/drinking-water-wells/
