Free Webinars Teach Private Well Ownership

TWIN FALLS, Feb 05, 2013 (The Times-News - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) -- A free webinar series offers new training and resources to private well owners in Idaho.

State health and environmental officials are encouraging well owners to view the Private Well Class, a 10-part online class featuring several live, interactive webinars on groundwater basics, well care best practices and how to find assistance. It will also teach well owners how to sample their well, how to interpret sample results, and what they can do to protect their well and source water from contamination.

In Twin Falls, the South Central Public Health District and Idaho Department of Environmental Quality will host viewings at the Katz Conference Room in the health district's office, 1020 Washington St. N. Two are scheduled this month: "Proper Care of Your Private Well" on Feb. 6, and "Water Quality and Your Private Well" on Feb. 27. Both days, the webinars will run from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Well owners who plan to attend are encouraged, but not required, to contact Irene Nautch with DEQ's Twin Falls office, at 208-736-2190 or Participants do not have to register for the online class to attend the webinars.

The program is based in Illinois, but applies to private well owners across the country. For more information: www.privatewellclass. org or email
