Wells that are unused and have not been abandoned properly can cause a risk to ground water quality. Wells decommissioned incorrectly can send contaminated surface water into ground water. Ground water flows through soil and rock to filter out contaminants, but contamination from an improperly abandoned well can spread through the water table to wells in the area.
