A fact-filled two-hour program on “Get (Water) Well Educated” was held on Saturday, July 18, 2015 at the FOR Community Center. The program was the fifth in a series of six educational programs held this year hosted by Friends of the River San Bernard Environmental Committee.
Speakers were Drew Gholson, Extension Program Specialist, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, who coordinates the Texas Well Owner Network, an extension program that aims to improve the water quality and health of Texans reliant on water wells and Diane Boellstorff, an Assistant Professor and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Water Resource Specialist.
Everyone attending received an 85-page manual “Texas Well Owners Network - Well Owner’s Guide to Water Supply” that left no question unanswered about properly maintaining a well.
