Removal of Electrolysis Within Drilled Wells

We seem to have a unique situation or at least one in which we are having problems finding qualified solutions to the problem at hand. We have an irrigation well which has been tested to pump 1000+ gpm and had produced consistently 800 gpm. The well was not used for 10 years due to the farm land being mistakenly enrolled in the government CRP program. At the time we wanted to start irrigating it was determined the pump was seized up due to the build up of "iron bacteria", the pump was pulled, the well was frozen and cleaned, a new shaft and renovated pump installed only to find we have 380 gpm now. We are trying to find a way to eliminate the electrolysis within the well which seems to have helped the bacteria grow. Any help or suggestions on this situation would be greatly appreciated! Thank-you
