Water Testing of Residential Wells in Southern NY and North PA
According to the U.S. Center for Disease Control if your water comes from a private well, germs and chemicals can enter your drinking water from flooding and extreme weather, runoff and natural changes in the water that serves your well. The use of contaminated water for drinking, preparing food and making ice can make you, your family and your pets sick. Babies, children, pregnant women, older adults and people with health conditions are most at risk of health effects from consuming contaminated water.

Well Flow Testing
NextGen Environmental can perform a well flow analysis (also known as ‘well pump performance’) to measure your well’s flow (gallons per minute) and pressure (psi) over a short period of time. This information will let you know if your well system is delivering an adequate water supply to your home at a given time, if repairs or adjustments are warranted, or if you may need to find another water source for your home. This well flow analysis won’t determine the depth or capacity of the well casing, pump, or aquifer, however, since those areas are not visible or accessible. Also, the well’s recovery rate is not determined since this often requires nearly draining the well. But will give you a better idea on the wells performance.
