Do I have to abandon my well?

There can be no interconnection between the reclaimed water system and any other system. The well may remain but you must physically disconnect it from the reclaimed water piping. Do not use reclaimed water within 100 feet of all potable water wells. Using reclaimed water vs. a well will eliminate the expense of a well, drilling, pump installation / operation and maintenance cost.
