Extension’s Water WELLness program provides private well owners with access to water testing kits, that are subsequently analyzed in a certified lab. We also share science-backed information that is designed to help them keep drinking water safe for their families. Extension mainly targets rural landowners, who are most likely to rely on private wells as their primary source of drinking water. Our well testing packages include the most commonly recommended well tests and are arranged in a way that makes it easy for people to understand which tests to perform. In 2020, 4,522 households submitted water samples from their individual private wells. In addition, Extension has had 491 educational contacts with owners.
