Westport Water Safe

The Town has been getting calls about our municipal water system and also individual well concerns related to flooding.

First, the Westport water from our municipal wells is very safe. It is tested daily and there have been no problems. The wells are high and dry and are well protected. Your Town water is SAFE, and tastes good, too.

Second, regarding private wells, Dane County Public Health says that as long as your wellhead has not been breached it should be safe. I am not aware of any issues yet with that. Older wells may be more problematic than newer ones. Dane County and the DNR have information on their web sites about well safety. Dane County Public Health also has well testing kits. They have said that on Monday they will be providing those kits and intaking them from spots around the County. We will provide more information on that as it becomes available. At this time, all appears safe. However, if you have concerns, please boil your drinking water to be sureā€¦.

Thank you.
