Part II. Cathodic Protection Well Construction
Section 6. Well Location With Respect to Pollutants and Contaminants, and
- Separation. Cathodic protection wells shall be located an adequate
distance from known or potential sources of pollution or contamination, where
site constraints and corrosion control considerations allow. Potential
sources of pollution and contamination include those listed in Section 8 of
the Water Well Standards.
As specified in Section 7 below, the length of the annular seal for a
cathodic protection well shall be increased if the well is located in a
congested urban area, or is located within 100 feet of any potential source
of pollution or contamination.
- Flooding and Drainage. Cathodic protection wells should be located in
areas protected from flooding, if possible. Wells located in areas of
flooding shall be protected from flood waters and drainage, including
protective measures outlined in Section 8, below.
Ground surface surrounding a cathodic protection well shall slope away from
the well. Drainage from areas surrounding a cathodic protection well shall
be directed away from the well.
- Accessibility. All cathodic protection wells shall be located an
adequate distance from buildings and other structures to allow access for
well maintenance, modification, repair, and destruction, unless otherwise
approved by the enforcing agency.
