On a well, you may want to get a generator or make sure you can get water if the power is out for any length of time. We store water for emergency uses here, which is not a bad idea for anywhere you live or what type of water system you are on.Check with a local real estate brokerage and they will be able to tell you where you can have your water tested. You can also check with the county health department and community development.
What is considered safe today many not be tomorrow, you just never know these days. When asked the question about safety I tell my clients to contact our sheriff's department and local police department. I also tell my clients that they can go to our sheriff's website and to www.watchdog.org as there is a lot of interesting information on both sites.Remember to plant Roses or Holly under your windows! Burglars don't like thorns!Happy New Year!
