Is it bad to have a septic tank and a water well on the same property?

    In many cases, you have no option but to have both on the same property. Septic tanks can contaminate ground water if they are not properly installed. It can happen when you have a shallow water table or the soil below the tank is too thin to clean effluent. To avoid this problem septic tanks need to be 100 feet away from a well. Also the deeper the well, the less chance of contamination from septic tanks. The link provided goes into much more detail. Be sure to check it out.
