Regular readers may remember that I have been ranting about having to get my well water tested for bacteria for my home study since I’m not dead so it must be fine. This is an example of pride going before the fall. The tests came back showing bacterial contamination. So now I’m in the process of bleaching my well.

This is hurting my little environmentalist soul. Pour straight bleach into the well? Run it out later onto the ground? Run the water in all the spigots of the house full blast for 5 minutes? They are trying to kill me.

The craziest thing is that in preparation for not being able to run the water for 12 hours I filled up all the containers I have with our bacterial-laden water. I still say it is fine because I’m not dead.
