The Fairhaven Health Department would like to notify all homeowners, as RCAP Solutions, Inc. is currently seeking local homeowners who are interested in learning more about the quality of their water and the condition of their well. Unlike public drinking water systems, private wells do not have experts regularly checking the water’s source and its quality before it is sent to the tap. Households that use private wells must take special precautions to ensure the safety of their drinking water.
RCAP Solutions can provide local well owners the opportunity to have a free, on-site professional review of their well head and the recharge area, and determine well maintenance needs. Well vulnerabilities will be evaluated based on well specifications, nearby environmental threats, geology, and contamination issues in the area.
For more information, or if you are interested in participating in the complimentary private well assessment program, please contact Jim Starbard at (978) 502-0227 or email Jstarbard@rcapsolutions.org to schedule a consultation. Additional information is also available at privatewellclass.org.
RCAP Solutions, Inc., is a not for profit organization comprised of health professionals, geologists, chemists, engineers, and licensed water operators that are part of a larger network of ground water and drinking water professionals available to provide the necessary resources for participants.
NOTE: This free service does not include water sampling or testing.
