Well Rehabilitation & Abandonment

Well Rehabilitation

If your well is not performing as it once did, has become sluggish, or is providing poor water quality, Apple River Well & Pump Company’s well rehabilitation services may be what you need. Rehabilitation has been a very effective tool in which we clean out mineral deposits, iron bacteria, rust, and black flakes. These can hinder your wells ability to produce the yield and quality of water you require. We have a high success rate in opening up formations to produce a greater yield of water.

If your well is failing to produce the gallons per minute and quality it once did, our rehabilitation services may restore flow and provide you with the needed water supply.


Located an abandoned well on your property, or received a notice from the Health Department to seal your well? We can assist you in properly abandoning the well according to County and State codes.

An abandoned well can pose a health and safety hazard, and become a potential route for groundwater contamination if sealed improperly or not sealed at all. Sealing abandoned wells not only satisfies legal requirements, but it also aids in protecting groundwater, ensures safety, decreases potential liability for the landowner. It is required, under the Illinois Water Well Construction Code, that the owner of a water well, boring or monitoring well, must properly seal the well within 30 days of abandonment or when it is no longer used.

We provide this service for residential, agricultural, municipal, and commercial applications. Our offices will handle the permit application process as well as scheduling the necessary appointments with the Health Department Sanitarian for your county. Once we have sealed the well you and the county will be provided with the well sealing affidavit documentation.
