Most people are connected to the water mains and so have a constant source of drinking water, however, in some parts of England and Wales there is no supply from a water company and individuals living in these areas have their own private water supplies, usually from modern boreholes or old-fashioned wells.
Water well injuries
Water wells are not that common in the UK with only one per cent of the population getting their drinking water from private water supplies. Open-topped deep wells can pose a risk to individuals, especially children. A fall down a well will result in injuries such as broken bones, severe bruising or even death. Wells should be covered or capped if they are no longer in use. Capping a well prevents animals and people from falling into the well. A well may be decommissioned by being filled in entirely with concrete.
