Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) invites well owners in the Credit River Watershed to attend Solutions for Safer Well Water, a free webinar about well water safety on Wednesday, April 12 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Landowners will learn how best to test their water, how to maintain their well infrastructure and why protecting groundwater is so important.
“This webinar is for landowners who have wells on their property and will cover all the information you need to keep yourself, your family and your community safe from contaminated water,” said Lisa Brusse, Manager of Landowner Engagement and Stewardship at Credit Valley Conservation.
Guest speakers Sandra Angelucci, a Peel Public Health Inspector, and Dwayne Graff, President of the Ontario Ground Water Association, will cover the health effects of contaminated water, how contamination happens, treatment options and solutions to protect water quality.
During the online event, participants will also have a chance to ask well water experts their questions. Register at cvc.ca/events or call 905-670-1615 ext. 221.
Interested landowners unable to attend the webinar can contact a CVC stewardship coordinator at cvc.ca/GreenYourProperty for more information on how to assess, upgrade or improve their well. The Province of Ontario website also has a best practices guide to learn more about actions you can take to reduce the risk to your drinking water.
