Well water testing

Asked August 25, 2019, 5:05 PM EDT

My water test shows Total Coliform Bacteria present. E. coli Bacteria is absent. What do I need to do to make my well water safe? Or should I re-test?

First, you will want to shock cholorinate your well and retest. http://wellwater.oregonstate.edu/bacteria has information on how to do it. If you are uncomfortable doing it yourself a well contractor/pump company can help.
