Private Well Assistance

GLCAP can assist you if you own a home in a rural area and use well water supplies. We can help assess the quality of your water well and provide low-interest loans for well repair or replacement.

Private Well Assessments

Private water well assessments help you learn more about your well system and can identify potential threats to your drinking water supply. Well water testing assessments entail an in-person inspection of your well, evaluation of the water source, and education to ensure well water safety.

We can also recommend feasible solutions for identified issues and provide assistance to access federal, state, and other funding for well constructions and repairs.
