Well Water Testing for Homeowners
Private wells are primarily unregulated (although a few states are beginning to regulate), so it is up to the homeowner to make sure their water coming from the well is safe for consumption. Most wells are tested at some point in time, but more than likely that testing was only for bacteria. While bacteria poses an immediate health risk, there are other contaminants that lurk in ground water that can cause illness when exposed to small amounts over a long periods of time - Arsenic and Uranium are two examples.
