Learn How to Protect Your Water Well

Posted October 26, 2011 by LSC

Consider how your life would change if you lost your water supply!

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 the 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 a free water well management workshop being hosted by local municipalities and organizations across Alberta, and presented by the Working Well Program, with technical expertise provided by Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development, Alberta Environment and Water, and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

At the workshops you will learn about:

  • 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
