Residents who get their drinking water from a private well, spring, or cistern are invited to a Home Water and Septic System Workshop on Thursday, November 30 at the Dickinson Township Building. Participants may attend either an afternoon session from 1:00pm-3:00pm or an evening session from 6:00pm – 8:00pm. The same information will be provided during each period.

The program will cover proper well construction, maintenance, testing and treatment of private drinking water supplies. The care and maintenance of septic systems will also be address since 80% of Pennsylvania residents with private water wells also have on-lot septic systems.

Free drinking water testing will be provided for up to 30 households per workshop. Results can determine if further testing by an accredited lab is recommended. Sample collection instructions will be provided to registrants. Support for this program is provided by the Pennsylvania DEP and Pennsylvania Ground Water Association.
