Private Septic and Wells

Some residents in the Town of Stouffville get water from private wells and discharge sewage in private septic systems. Learn how to test your water quality and maintain your septic system.

Testing well water quality

If you get your drinking water from a private well, you are responsible for the quality of this drinking water source. We recommend that you test samples of the drinking water supply on a regular basis, especially if you have a shallow well. Visit York Region for more information about private wells and sample bottle pick up and drop off locations.
