Texas Well Owner Network Program
LIBERTY, May 13, 2015 - The Texas Well Owner Network (TWON) program is a free, one-day educational training for Texas residents who depend on household wells for their water needs. TWON is for private well owners who want to become familiar with groundwater resources, septic system maintenance, well maintenance, water quality and water treatment. Private well owners are independently responsible for monitoring the quality of their wells. Essentially, they are the operators of their own water system and are responsible for ensuring that their water is safe.
BRING YOUR WELL WATE SAMPLES:
Well owners may bring water samples to the training to be screened for nitrate, total dissolved solids (TDS) and bacteria for $10. Pick up approved sample containers with instructions at the Liberty (501 Palmer Ave., Liberty, TX) or San Jacinto County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension offices. Bring your samples and payment to the training on May 28.
Each participant will receive a free Well Owner’s Guide to Water Supply Handbook.
