Groundwater Awareness Week: March 8-14, 2015
"Time to schedule your annual water well checkup!"
Just as you check your furnace or smoke detector batteries seasonally, spring is a good season to have an annual water well checkup before the peak water use season begins, according to the National Ground Water Association (NGWA).
To find a professional: Licensed well drillers, pump installers, and plumbers are good sources of information.
Also, if you are interested in checking the quality of your well water, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension provides an inexpensive analysis. Go to http://soiltesting.tamu.edu/files/waterweb1.pdf for the water sample form and instructions for collecting and submitting your sample.
