The Town of Stonewall has developed a program to identify and seal abandoned wells within the Town. Unsealed abandoned wells may:
- act as conduits for the movement of near-surface contaminants such as bacteria and nutrients into underground aquifers.
- flow uncontrollably at the surface resulting in water waste, nuisance or flooding problems.
- interconnect fresh water and saline water aquifers, allowing saline water to enter into fresh water zones.
- pose a threat to children or animals who may fall into large diameter openings and become trapped.
If you have an abandoned well on your property and would like to have it sealed by the Town of Stonewall, please contact the Town Office at 204-467-7979.
