On June 24th at 10am EST, the Groundwater Foundation will present a FREE webinar to discuss the basis of groundwater and how attending to water wells is key to clean drinking water supplies.
The material covered will interest a wide range of groups including private industry, school educators, regulatory officials, water well contractors and pump installers. This discussion can set the stage for other discussions on responsible land use planning, agricultural challenges related to withdrawals, pesticides, and nitrates in addition to emerging contaminants and available reference materials.
Topics will include:
Groundwater overview — presented by William Alley, Ph.D.
- Hydrologic cycle
- Groundwater availability
- Groundwater sustainability.
Private wells — presented by Steven Wilson and Karen Kinsella, Ph.D.
- Wellhead protection (from siting to monitoring areas near the wellhead)
- Water testing — routine monitoring and when changes are noted
- Well maintenance
- Water quality issues — health vs. aesthetics.
The Groundwater Foundation connects people, businesses, and communities through local groundwater education and action, making us all part of the solution for clean, sustainable, groundwater. The organization provides motivational and inspirational education and community-based action programs that creatively involve individuals, communities, public and private entities in groundwater conservation and protection.
