Some say, remove the pump handle.
Others say (rightly) that we will die without water.
So, a compromise is being looked at to pump out the water slowly from the contaminated well.
Still others say, that is the cost of getting water, so pump it out as fast as you need to.
There is an alternative. Drawing water from an uncontaminated well.
We need to consider alternatives to our "this is how we always done it" mentality.
