If your drinking water is, or will be, supplied by a well, it is very important to find out as much about your property as you can. 

For example, if your property will be served on an on-site sewage disposal system, it is important to contact the Benton-Franklin Health District before drilling your new well. Improper placement of a well on a lot can severely limit the placement of an on-site sewage disposal system and, in a worst case scenario, render the lot unusable. Placement of the drainfield must be a minimum of 100 feet away from all
 wells, not just the one you are anticipating drilling on your property.
