The recent dry summer drives home the importance of staying on top of what’s happening with your well.
On November 9, the Rural Water Watch Association will be presenting a special workshop on keeping your well healthy at the Musquodoboit Harbour Public Library from 1-3 pm.
According to its website, the RWWA’s mandate is “to help residents in marginalized rural communities throughout Nova Scotia determine the health of their well water, understand the link between contaminated water and illness and disease, understand water analysis and the need for regular water testing, and learn about ways to protect and manage their water supplies.”
At the workshop, RWWA will go over how to keep your well healthy, going over common issues like the need for regular well testing and maintenance, local concerns, and the impact of climate change. Participants will learn about resources that help you manage and protect your well water.
