In 1907 Montana developed a public water supply program due to the outbreaks of waterborne disease and resulting deaths. In 1974 the Federal Government passed the Safe Drinking Water Act to protect public health. It has been amended several time increasing the requirements for safe water. Most of these rules apply to public water systems that provide 15 service connections or 25 people for 60 days of the year.
Private wells do not come under the scrutiny of these rules. Therefore, it is the responsibility of each individual to see if their water system is safe. Very few homeowners monitor their well and water system on a monthly basis.
Montana Healthy Water, LLC recognizes this lack of help for individual wells. They use the knowledge and experience, and training from Montana Department of Environmental Quality and Environmental Protections Agency to help individual wells achieve healthy water.
