Informative water well management workshop will help residents protect their water wells.

Have you had your well water tested in the last two years? Have old unused wells on your property been properly sealed and decommissioned? Have you ever shock chlorinated your well? Do you know the age and depth of your well, or how it was constructed?

According to Alberta water specialist Ken Williamson, if you answered no to any of these questions, your groundwater supply could be at risk. Despite the fact that 450,000 Albertans rely on groundwater for household use, few know that proper water well construction, siting, and maintenance can help protect your well from contamination.

To ensure the safety of your water well, you should also know how far your septic system is from your well. Septic tanks should be regularly pumped and inspected. You should also disinfect your well on a regular basis.

It is also important to regularly test and document the quality and quantity of water from your well. By keeping good records you can see how water quality and well performance has changed over time. Proper well maintenance and operation can save you costly repairs and ensure your well water yields are sustained over many years.

If you’d like to find out if your groundwater is at risk and learn what you can do to protect your well, attend a free water well management workshop being hosted by Lac Ste. Anne County and presented by the Working Well Program, with technical expertise from Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, Alberta Environment and Parks, Alberta Health Services, and licensed water well drillers on Wednesday, October 25 in Sangudo. This hands-on, informative workshop is designed to help water well owners better understand and manage their precious groundwater supplies.
