Does well water get cleaner as you dig deeper?

    This depends entirely on the water table and the location of the well. It may or may not be cleaner as you dig deeper. You must get a professional to test the water.

    Deeper wells are at less of a risk for contamination as a general rule. This is because more shallow wells are more likely to receive surface pollution, as it has to travel shorter distances and filter through less to get there. Overall, however, each area is different and it is important to investigate further and hire help to determine the risks of your well.

    The risk for contamination is also higher if the soil layer is shallow, if the soil is very porous and therefore more absorbent, like sand, or if there are cracks in the bedrock underneath the soil.
