Is it an option for our town to drill wells in order to eliminate manganese from the minerals in our water?

The Town will be working with Weston and Sampson to conduct a secondary water source study. With respect to a secondary source, groundwater source (i.e., wells) is an option for the community to consider. However, drilling wells may not completely solve the issue as veins of manganese are often riddled throughout the system. If we have manganese at 100 ft, we will likely have it at 300 feet It's also important to note that digging deeper is not always an option due to soil conditions and production.
