  Wellhead Protection Facts

The City of Dyersburg's Water comes from a supply of 7 wells located within the city limits. All wells are over 600 feet deep and draw water from the Memphis Sand Aquifer. Wellhead Protection Area (WHPA)- The surface or subsurface area that surrounds a water well or well field supplying a public water system and through which contaminants may move toward and reach the water well or well field. Groundwater is often taken for granted. Once it is polluted, it may be impossible to clean. Groundwater can become polluted by the improper disposal of household hazardous waste, over use of water, improper application of pesticides and fertilizers, leaking underground storage tanks, faulty septic systems, improper disposal of industrial wastes and over use of road salts.
