Public Health

The mission of the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) is to protect the public through promoting individual, community, and environmental health. 

Public Health Water Well Maintenance & Care
Like any other aspect of property ownership, wells require regular, ongoing maintenance. Well maintenance is important to the health of your family and property. Once a well is installed, maintenance of your well and regular testing of your water will help ensure your water is of high quality and safe to use. It is your responsibility to maintain your well, monitor your water quality and help protect the quality of drinking water in Butte County. Regular maintenance will not only ensure the safety of your water, but will also alert you to any problems that need attention and ensure the continued efficient operation of your well.
