On Centre: Penns Valley | Workshop to focus on well water quality

June 8, 2014 

A water well wellness workshop will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday at the Potter Township building, 124 Short Road, Spring Mills.

Bryan Swistock, water resources coordinator with Penn State Extension, will host the workshop. Swistock is a co-author of “ A Guide to Private Water Systems in Pennsylvania.”

Geologist Todd Giddings, operator of the state-certified water testing lab, will discuss the implications of major construction projects on water well integrity.

While private water wells are the responsibility of homeowners, the workshop will discuss water quality and how to protect the well.

Spokeswoman Mary Carol Frier said the workshop is “especially relevant for well owners living within 1 mile of the Potters Mills Gap construction project.”

The workshop is free to the public, but registration is required.

Free, basic water well quality testing is available to the first 25 registrants at each session.

To RSVP, contact Frier at 364-2847 or marycarolfrier@gmail.com.
