About This Event
Did you know that a poorly maintained water well can put your water supply at risk of contamination and reduce your well yield?
If you use your water well for household purposes, the key to ensuring your water supply is safe and secure is knowing how groundwater works, learning about your well and understanding how to properly maintain it.
Proper water well siting, construction and maintenance will help protect your well from biofouling and contamination, save you costly repairs, and ensure your well water yields are sustained over many years.
Learn what you can do to protect your well. Attend the FREE, in-person water well management workshop hosted by Starland County and Special Area No. 2, and presented by the Working Well Program, with technical expertise provided by Alberta Agriculture and Irrigation, Alberta Environment and Protected Areas, Alberta Health Services and licensed water well drillers.
