Water Well Owner Training
Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at 5:00pm
at the Lincoln Community Center
The training is free and open to the public. Drew Gholson, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service program specialist and network coordinator, said “The TWON program is for Texas residents who depend on household wells for their water needs, so they can learn about improving and protecting their community water resources.”
“The program was established to help well owners become familiar with Texas groundwater resources, septic system maintenance, well maintenance and construction, and water quality and treatment,” said Gholson.
He said participants may bring well-water samples to the training for screening. The cost is $10 per sample, due when samples are turned in. Bringing water samples to the training is not required, Gholson said, but those wanting to have water samples analyzed must attend.
“Water samples will be screened for nitrates, total dissolved solids and bacteria,” Gholson said. Well owners who would like to have their well water sampled can pick up two sample containers from the AgriLife Extension office for Lee County, 310 S. Grimes St. in Giddings, or for Bastrop County, 901 Pecan Street in Bastrop.
Space is limited, so attendees are requested to register at http://twon.tamu.edu/training or by calling 979-845-1461 as soon as possible.
