Free Working Well Workshop

November 4, 2015 (7:00pm - 9:30pm)

A free water well management workshop is being held November 4, 2015 at the Evergreen Park ENTREC Centre in the LSM Room starting at 7 p.m.

Did you know that a poorly maintained water well can put your water supply at risk of contamination and reduce your well yield?

If you are one of 450,000 Albertans who use their water well for household purposes, the key to ensuring your water supply is safe and secure is knowing how groundwater works, learning about your well and understanding how to properly maintain it.

Proper water well siting, construction, maintenance and plugging will help protect your well from biofouling and contamination, save you costly repairs, and ensure your well water yields are sustained over many years.

Find out what you can do to protect your well. Attend the FREE water well management workshop being hosted by the County of Grande Prairie, and presented by the Working Well Program, with technical expertise provided by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, Alberta Environment and Parks, Alberta Health Services and licensed water well drillers.

During the workshop we will cover:

  • Groundwater – how it works
  • Water quality and quantity testing
  • Well protection – protecting your well from contamination
  • Basic well maintenance
  • Water sampling – how to do it
