Eagle Ford: Well-owner training Feb. 27
The Texas Well Owner Network training will be held Wednesday, Feb. 27, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Cibolo Nature Center, located at 140 City Park Road in Boerne.
Anyone interested in private water well management in the Upper Cibolo Creek watershed area is invited to this free event.
Participants may take samples of their well water to the program for analysis, according to Drew Gholson, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service program specialist and program coordinator. Water samples will be screened for nitrate, total dissolved solids, arsenic, and bacteria.
Well owners can pick up sample containers from the AgriLife Extension office in Kendall County at 201 E. San Antonio Ave., Suite 9, Boerne. The analyses cost $10 per sample for nitrate, total dissolved solids, and arsenic. There is also a $10 per-sample cost for E. coli bacteria analyzed by the river authority, and cash payment is due when samples are turned in at the training.
Bringing water samples is not required, but those wanting to have water samples analyzed must attend the training.
Attendance is limited to 70 participants, so attendees are requested to register as soon as possible at http://twon.tamu.edu/training or by calling 979-845-1461.
