Private Well Water Quality Worksho
Thursday, September 22, 2022
5:00 pm – 7:30 pm CT
Jackson County Extension Office, 2741 Penn Ave., Marianna, FL 32448

The majority of rural residents in the Florida Panhandle rely on groundwater from private wells for home consumption. Groundwater is also the major source of water used in agricultural production. While public water systems are regulated federally to ensure safe drinking water, private wells are not regulated. Private well owners are responsible for ensuring the safety of their well water.

Do you know where your well water comes from or how well water may become contaminated? Join us for a workshop to learn about how private wells and septic systems work, maintenance, and protecting your drinking water quality. Facilitated water testing is available; discounted rates are offered on a first come, first served basis.

This event is $5.00 per person. For testing prices and additional details, please visit our Eventbrite page or call 850-482-9620. Pre-registration is encouraged as seating is limited. To register, please visit the Jackson County Extension Office, 2741 Penn Avenue, Suite 3, Marianna or visit
