Well Cleaning Aids and Well Rehabilitation Aids

Minnesota Rules, Chapter 4725, as amended on August 4, 2008, requires that any chemical placed in a well or boring to increase the yield, remove or treat contaminants or objectionable tastes or odors, or rehabilitate the well or boring must meet the requirements of ANSI/NSF Standard 60-2003e. In addition, sodium or calcium hypochlorite would be allowed if registered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in accordance with the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), section 3(c)(7)(A) as an antimicrobial pesticide for use in potable water.
