Water from the well is not always safe

Many people in rural communities and small towns in Ukraine drink water from wells. Most of these wells do not meet sanitary standards, measured by chemical and microbiological indicators.

If you have any concerns about the quality of your well water you should do the following:

  • Have the water quality tested in a specialised laboratory.
  • Improve the quality of your family‚Äôs drinking water by installing an appropriate filter that takes into account the type of water.
  • Leave water to stand for a while before giving it to your pets or using it to water your plants.
