End of Summer "to do" List

As we near the end of yet another summer, we need take a look at what's left on our summer “to do” list. For the many people who rely on a private well for drinking water, summer is often the time to have their well tested.

In order to maintain a clean, safe supply of water, testing and other regular maintenance are critical. To help you remember these important tasks you can join the Water Systems Council’s wellcare® Well Owner’s Network. As a member of the Network, which, by the way, is FREE, you will receive important notifications, reminders, updated information and handy tips for maintaining your private well.

To join the Network today, call 1-888-395-1033 or visit www.watersystemscouncil.org/network.php.

Hello All!
The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) recently has started the Private Well Owner Hotline. Its purpose is to help private well owners with questions relating to water quality such as water testing and treatment, groundwater protection, and well maintenance and construction.
Please spread the word or repost so others can know! The toll-free number is 855-420-9355 (855-H20-Well). The hotline hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Time except for national holidays.
While you’re at it, also tell others about NGWA’s new Private Well Owner Tip Sheet—a free monthly, one-page newsletter about tools to help private well owners reduce risks to their water supplies. Sign up for the Tip Sheet at www.wellowner.org.

How great to see all of the wonderful tools that are available to private well owners! It is important for them to understand the responsibility they have for their own drinking water and these resources will be excellent tools for them. Now we just have to make sure they are aware that they are out there.
