Understanding the Value of Wells and Pumping Equipment to Your Community

The importance of water supply wells and pumping equipment is paramount to a community. Typically the initial investment and current value of a well system is not fully understood by its operators, owners, or municipal agencies. A community makes a significant initial investment with the construction and development costs of a new water supply well and the well pumping equipment. It is extremely important to the community to protect this investment. This seminar will present the current value of these important resources.
