loose water well cover - present for total coliform
I had my water tested the other day and it came back positive for total coliform, negative for e-coli and twice the limit for arsenic. I took a quick look at the well and the cover can be moved about 1/8th to 1/4th inch in either direction. Should it be tight? Could that be where the bacteria is getting in? Boiling and filtering all water now as I don't want to take a chance.
We have had a very rainy June, so I assume that has something to do with the test results. I will make some calls on Monday to the folks that originally drilled the well but I thought someone here might have some advice.
