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.


Well owners may bring water samples to be screened for total coliform and E. coli bacteria. Pick up approved sample containers with instructions at the Pearl River County MSU Extension office April 29–May 12, 2021. Each participant will receive free MSU Extension publications related to private wells and septic systems.
