By saving the money from using this more efficient method, more attention can be placed on fixing the more difficult problems. My personal work has been focused on the best techniques currently used by agencies that make their work more cost effective and efficient. EPA’s point system targets the greatest offenders to focus more on the worst cases. Since the problem is so widespread and involves so many individuals, it is easy for some violations to go undetected for long periods of time. By compiling the degrees of violation and progress over time, the difficulties of detection can potentially be overcome.

In fact, we did our best to get the word out to our employees and customers about the website (www.WellOwner.org) with which they can access information and tools to better protect their wells.
