Residents of the Carrolls Corner area gathered at the Carrolls Corner Community Center in the afternoon of January 18, 2020 for Rural Water Watch's second Healthy Wells Workshop. We would like to sincerely thank Juli and the Community Center for making this workshop possible.
Attendees discussed the importance of testing drinking well water regularly, and doing regular maintenance of well and plumbing infrastructure. Questions focused on water hardness, iron, and manganese. As this area sits on limestone and gypsum bedrock, clogged plumbing fixtures are a common problem for well owners.
Baked treats came from the Brookfield Bakery, and few lucky folks took home free bacteria analyses from a draw to get them started on their water quality monitoring!
Rural Water Watch is planning to offer these workshops on an ongoing basis across the province, so stay tuned for more news!
