    Just wondering how far a chicken run/coop should be kept from a well to avoid contaminating the water. Apparently neighbors had this issue..

    I do not know about your County, but here, the County Healthy Dept has all this information and will prove to be very helpful. Each area has slightly different codes and guidelines as soils differ greatly from place to place. Making generalized statements for one area isn't particularly helpful to someone living in a different area.
