The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends all private water systems be tested at least once per year for coliform bacteria.

Coliform bacteria live in top soil, on vegetation and in surface water. There are different strains or species of coliform bacteria. The type that are found in the intestines of warm-blooded animals and fecal matter are called E.coli. Some strains of coliform bacteria can easily live for long periods in soil and water and may be carried into well casings by insects. Coliform bacteria are the most commonly encountered contaminants seen in private water systems.
