Arizona Well Owner's Guide to Water Supply

Domestic wells are largely unregulated by federal, state, and local agencies, and up to now the owners of these wells have been largely on their own in maintaining their wells, monitoring the conditions of the aquifer, and making sure the water is safe to drink.
