While not exactly a sexy subject, this is interesting from a data & public health perspective.  According to research from the NAHB’s Economics analysis of the Survey of Construction (SOC), about 9% of new single-family homes started in 2018 across America were served by individual wells and more than 16% have private septic systems.  The SOC classifies community or shared water supply/wells as public water rather than individual wells.
