Iowa environmental officials are pushing for Iowans to plug their abandoned wells.

Abandoned wells can contaminate ground water, and also can cause physical injuries to people and livestock that fall into them.

Iowans can receive $400 from the state to help cover the costs of plugging wells. There’s also a $600 grant available for those who want to rehabilitate their well.
