Learning About The Ground Water Connection

The goal of SRWEP-sponsored workshops is to provide adult residents of the Watershed with information about their wells and septic systems that will save them money, protect their property values, and help to protect water quality.

In these two hour workshops held twice a year, instructors from the University of Rhode Island Home*a*Syst Program and the RI Dept. of Health use models and slides to teach basic concepts.

Residents leave with the knowledge of how to protect their well water supply, how and when to test their well water, how wells are constructed and work, the importance of living in the watershed of a public drinking water supply and how ground water travels. In addition, sub-themes are often offered on topics such as septic system operation and maintenance, living on a lake front, underground storage tanks, or healthy gardening and lawn care.

Workshops are advertised in the Bargain Buyer, or check the NRICD Calendar for posted dates and locations.
