Yavapai County Cooperative Extension Offers
Free Workshop for Private Well Owners.

The University of Arizona Cooperative Extension, Yavapai County will be offering a Private Well Owner’s Workshop on February 2nd, 2009 from 6-9pm in the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors Boardroom located on 1015 Fair Street in Prescott, Arizona. In Arizona there are no water quality regulations for domestic wells. Therefore it is in the interest of the private well owner to know how to best protect their own well.

University of Arizona experts will cover the basics of well construction, safeguarding your well against contamination, recommended water quality tests, interpretation of the test results and well water treatment options. Water testing kits will be available for purchase following the seminar.

If you are a well owner, you won’t want to miss this free workshop! Free materials will be available for the first 70 registrants. This program is funded by the University of Arizona Water Sustainability Program: a collaboration of scientists and educators that is coordinated by five University of Arizona water centers.
