Free training program for residents whose water source comes from a well

A Texas Well-Owner Network program taking place at the Doss Heritage Center, Oct. 2, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., offers free educational training for Texas residents who depend on household wells for their water needs.

The free, one-day TWON training is for private well owners who want to become familiar with ground water resources, septic system maintenance, well maintenance, water quality and water treatment.

Private well owners are independently responsible for monitoring the quality of their wells. Essentially, they are the operators of their own water system and are responsible for ensuring that their drinking water is safe.

Well owners may bring water samples to the training to be screened for nitrate, total dissolved solids, arsenic, as well as E. coli bacteria for $15. Pick up approved sample bags and bottles with instructions at the Texas A&M Agrilife extension offices in Parker, Wise, Hood, Palo Pinto, Johnson and Jack counties. Bring your samples and payment of $15 to the training on Oct. 2.

Each participant will receive a TWON “Owner’s Guide to Water Supply” handbook.
