MS Well Owner Network Workshop - Greene County
Water Sample Drop Off
9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
begins at 2 p.m.
MISSISSIPPI WELL OWNER NETWORK PROGRAM
The Mississippi Well Owner Network program is a free, educational training opportunity for Mississippi residents who depend on private home wells for their water needs. The program will benefit private well owners who want to become familiar with groundwater 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 systems and are responsible for ensuring that their water is safe.
BRING YOUR WELL WATER SAMPLES!
Well owners may bring water samples to be screened for total coliform and E. coli bacteria for $25. Pick up approved sample containers with instructions at the Greene County MSU Extension office April 30–May 4 and May 7–8. Each participant will receive free MSU Extension publications related to private wells and septic systems.
