Well water is usually has a very low level of dissolved Oxygen (Anoxic). Adding proportionally large amounts to a pond can cause real porblems for all aquatic organisms from bacteria up to fish, they all depend on ample supplies of oxygen.The other problem with UNTESTED well water is that you do not know the levels of heavy metals, hydrocarbons or other harmful pollutants that may be present. Many wells across the country have been shut down because of the presence of these contaminants.
