Private Well Assessments

Communities Unlimited (CU) offers free well assessments in Arkansas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas to homeowners. The free well assessment will be conducted in person by a CU Technical Assistance Provider along with additional information to ensure well water safety and reliability. The well owner must be present during the free well assessment and provide the well log if available. If you do not have this information, please let the Technical Assistance Provider know. Technical Assistance Providers can recommend feasible solutions for identified issues and provide assistance to access federal and state funding for well construction and repairs.

The Technical Assistance Provider will:

  • Identify potential threats to your well
  • Identify potential sources of well contamination
  • Visually inspect your well
  • Review well construction
  • Evaluate water source

CU is the southern regional partner of the Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP).
This program provides trainings and technical assistance for private well owners to help improve water quality and is funded by the EPA through RCAP, Inc.
