Iron bacteria in wells do not cause health problems, but they can have the following unpleasant and possibly expensive effects:

* Cause odors
* Corrode plumbing equipment
* Reduce well yields (clog screens and pipes)
* Increase chances of sulfur bacteria infestation.

This website tells you how to use preventive maintainence to prevent an infestation -- and if you get one, methods you can use to get rid of the infestation.
