Piney Mountain homes depend on wells for potable water. Each homeowner is responsible for maintenance of his/her well and pump. It should be noted that loss of water pressure often indicates a pump or electrical problem within the system and in such cases you should contact a plumbing company qualified to work with well pumps. If you suspect water contamination, the Orange County Environmental Health Services Division will respond to water quality issues, in addition to permitting and inspection of wells. Those interested in installing home water treatment systems should consult with a plumbing professional regarding the use of these systems in association with your well and our wastewater system.
