Financial Resources

Proper construction and maintenance of household water well systems is vitally important to public health. Water quality can be endangered by well systems that are deficient due to (1) neglected maintenance, or (2) because the well is beyond its useful lifespan.

Too often, urgently needed water well work is not done because either well owners cannot afford it—or they perceive that they cannot afford it. With this in mind, the National Ground Water Association (NGWA) has developed a video to help homeowners explore options for financing needed well construction or maintenance in ways that fit their needs.

The video covers financing options including:

  • Contractor-offered financing
  • Credit cards
  • Mortgage options
  • Home equity improvement loans
  • Lines of credit
  • Government long-term, low-interest loans.
