Farmers are often proud of the history of their land, the reminders here and there that the land has been in production for generations. If those reminders include old, unused wells, that’s a problem. Open wells may send pesticide and fertilizer right into the water supply for your family and the surrounding community. That’s why we’re here to help! Our technicians will sit down with you, roll up their sleeves, and walk you through your options. We can point you toward services, cost share, and technical assistance. Our assistance is 100% free and confidential. We aren’t selling anything.
When you close your old wells, you’re well on your way towards earning recognition in the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program, that’s MAEAP for short. Here’s what MAEAP is all about.
