Dry Well? 

Below-average precipitation - that Maine is currently experiencing - often results in prolonged shortages in its water supply, including those who have private wells.   Here are some steps to take if you or someone you know has a dry well:

  • Contact 2-1-1 to report your dry well. This will allow the state to see how widespread this problem is.
  • Contact a well driller to discuss options. Options include well replacement, lowering an existing well pump deeper into the water table, or deepening the well itself. For informational guidance on licensed well drillers in Maine, see the Maine Well Driller's Commission.
  • The following resources may be available to qualifying homeowners: Maine State Housing’s Home Repair Program and
    USDA’s Single Family Housing Loans and Grants.
  • The Water Systems Council is a non-profit organization focused on private wells, and operates the wellcare Hotline, a free service that can answer questions on wells and well water.
  • Bulk water hauling is another option - More Info
