Answers to Common Well and Septic Questions
How do I know if I have a well?
If you live in a rural or unincorporated area of the county and do not receive a water bill, you most likely have your own private well. If the well is not visible, if may be buried in a pit, underground, or under/in the house or basement. If you are connected to the municipal water supply, contact your municipality or the Illinois EPA for any water questions.
What if I am buying or selling a home that is on well and/or septic?

The well and septic survey will give you a better idea of where the well and septic is located, how it works, and if it is working. If you would like to conduct a well and septic survey, it is only $175.00 and you can start the request form (link attached below).
