Old well pits should be abandoned to avoid dangerous conditions such as odorless gas, chemicals,rodents, and run off. Wells should not have buildings over them. They need to be vented to prevent a buildup of gases that can cause explosions. They should be changed over to a pit less system.
In Alberta, landowners are fully responsible for abandoning old unused water wells. Landowners can be held legally responsible for any personal injuries or contamination to the aquifer.
In order to protect our ground water, old unused wells should be abandoned properly. This is done by a journeyman well driller. A bentonite product is used to fill and seal off these wells to prevent contamination of aquifers.
