Well Destruction

An open, abandoned well constitutes a physical hazard and forms a vertical pathway for movement of bacteriological and chemical contaminates into the groundwater supply.  Any toxic or adulterating substances entering the well may, in time, migrate to aquifers furnishing water to nearby wells.

In addition, a deteriorated and corroded casing can cause degradation of the groundwater by intermixing aquifers.
