New Jersey Water Testing Requirements

Did you know that 25% of all homes in the United States are serviced by private wells?  Private wells should have their water tested at least once a year for safety.  Water analysis is recommended by Polo & Associates and mandated by your mortgage company and the state of New Jersey.  Many more parameters are mandatory now than ever before for water testing prior to any home sale. Documenting GPS coordinates of the well is also a requirement. As a rule of thumb your well head should be 8” above the finish grade, uphill and at least 50-100’ away from any septic system.
