If you need to drill a water well or need water pump service for your well in Calabasas, it is nice to know a little bit about your city.

The city of Calabasas was incorporated in 1991 with a total area of 13 square miles. The most generally accepted origin of its name comes from a legend of a spilled load of pumpkins that sprouted their seeds alongside a road (from the Spanish word calabaza meaning “pumpkin”). Located in the hills west of the San Fernando Valley, the city has a population of just over 24,000 and is bordered by Woodland Hills, Agoura Hills, West Hills, Hidden Hills, and Malibu. It is home to the Leonis Adobe, one of the oldest buildings in the greater Los Angeles area. It also contains many large oak trees that may be 500-700 years old.

Water Well Inspection Service in Calabasas

Because a water well is a private water supply, testing the quality of the water is the responsibility of the property owner. Contaminants from the soil can affect the taste and appearance of the water, as well as its fitness for drinking. Occasionally bacteria can find their way into a well and cause the water to be unsuitable for consumption. It is important to have the water tested at least once a year, after a flood, or when there is a change in the taste or appearance of the water. While this may be done using a do-it-yourself test kit, it is important to contact a qualified professional should the results show any contamination.
