The Private Well Stewardship Program is an educational program offered through Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. "The Private Well Stewardship Program helps Iowa’s 230,000 private well owners to learn about the responsibilities and risks of being a private well owner and connect them to local experts to manage their well,” said Catherine DeLong, water quality program manager with ISU Extension and Outreach. "Many private well owners in Iowa don't know that there is funding available in every county to help test their well annually. Iowa is unique in covering this cost; we just need more people to take advantage."
An event will be held on October 4th from 6-7 pm at the Gilmore City Community Center in Gilmore City. There is no cost to attend.
