FREE Online Training for Private Well Owners

The Private Well Class is a free online service to educate homeowners about their private wells. The next webinar, Water Quality and Your Private Well, will take place on February 27th, 2013 at 1:00 CT. To learn more or to register, click here.

Gayle Nybo, Database and Reporting Director at Midwest Assistance Program, has participated in the Private Well Class over the past month and encourages those with private wells or those interested in ground water protection to join her online tomorrow.

“As a private well-owner in a rural area that has experienced a large population growth over the last 10 years, I felt this would be a good opportunity to learn more about my well and what types of impacts there may be on my system’s water quality, quantity etc. as more wells are being drilled in my neighboring areas. The classes presented have been very informative. They provide easy to understand lesson formats (one lesson per week) with helpful diagrams. So far, through these lessons I have attained a more educated understanding of my water system and how it works, and what can be done to properly maintain it, alleviating the need for expensive repairs or replacement. The lessons also provide great resources to refer to in the future. I’m looking forward to learning even more from the upcoming webinars.”
