If you have your own well, you are responsible for making sure that your water is safe to drink. Private wells should be tested annually for nitrate and coliform bacteria to detect contamination problems early.
Although Class I wells inject hazardous and nonhazardous waste, all injection wells are not waste disposal wells.
Community water systems (CWs) must collect and analyze one sample per plant at the entry point of the distribution system to determine sodium concentration levels. Samples must be collected and analyzed annually for systems utilizing surface water sources in whole or part, and at least every three years for systems utilizing solely ground water sources.

Disinfection is a process of killing disease-causing organisms (or pathogens). Chlorine (Cl2) is a very desirable disinfectant because, when mixed with pure water, it reacts to form hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and hydrochloric acid (HCl). HOCl (free active chlorine) is the most effective form of chlorine for disinfection. Read this white paper to find out more about Disinfection and Chlorine.
