Consideration was given to the mechanisms of propagation of electric potentials in the locality of water wells and their effects on damages in the structure of buildings. Electric potentials were measured using the digital multimeter. It was established that exploitable water wells determine the division of electric charges and potentials in the adjacent territory due to the origination of macroelectrokinetic potential and the evacuation of cations from the ground. These charges and potentials can result in nonuniform strains of bases and foundations, cracks and damages in the structure of buildings and also electrocorrosion intensification nearby DC rail tracks. The measures to protect the structures from indicated destructive factors have been recommended.
