Private Water Systems include wells, springs, and personal water sources utilized by individuals outside a public water system. All these systems require frequent monitoring and immediate repair when necessary. In general, it is a good idea to have your private water tested at least once a year, especially if the system is vulnerable to surface water runoff or contamination.
