The water source is a drilled well located on the property. The groundwater in this region contains above-average concentrations of dissolved iron. Our water system filters all water before it is dispensed in the kitchen and bathrooms. We discourage the use of water for direct consumption. It is perfectly fine to use the water for showering, washing food, and general cleaning. In the past, the well water has been used for boiling corn, cleaning vegetables and fish with no health effects.
