Application Note: Identifying Contaminated Groundwater Wells

A U.S. drinking water treatment facility was having difficulty maintaining chlorine residual levels in their distribution system and was receiving frequent taste and odor complaints from consumers.

Standard remediation strategies like flushing and equipment maintenance were not effective. Technicians suspected one or more of their four groundwater wells was experiencing excess microbiological growth so HPC (heterotrophic plate count) testing was done on all four wells. In all cases, no biological growth was detected so ATP testing and BART (biological activity reaction tests) were conducted to further investigate potential microbiological contamination.
