FAIRFIELD DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH: PRIVATE WATER WELLS
The Private Water Systems program is a state mandated program which includes wells, springs, cisterns, and ponds that are used as a potable water supply. A permit is required for each well alteration or new well drilled. Before these can be approved, a water sample is collected to make sure the water is acceptable, free from coliform bacteria, E. Coli, and nitrates. All well drillers are registered by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) and are inspected annually for renewal of licenses.
