Ledge Light Health District, in cooperation with the State Department of Consumer Protection, is responsible for ensuring that on-site water wells are installed and maintained in a sanitary manner.

LLHD is responsible for ensuring that proper separating distances are maintained between all sources of pollution, including septic systems, groundwater drains, etc., and the well.

We also maintain records of well drilling permits, completion reports and well water test results.

While LLHD does not conduct well water testing, we do maintain a list of CT certified laboratories that are available to test your well water.
