Capping abandoned wells must be done properly to protect water sources
from Inside Belleville
An abandoned well at Potter's Creek was recently capped to ensure that no contaminants could get into it and pose a risk to drinking water sources. Now, Quinte Conservation hopes people who witnessed the process will learn from it and contribute to efforts to decommission other unused water wells. "All over Hastings and Prince Edward County there are abandoned and unused wells," said Jennifer May-Anderson, Quinte's Conservation communications manager.
