The training, which is free and open to the public, will be from 1-5 p.m. at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center, 1229 N. US Highway 281. It is being offered to area private water well owners through collaboration with the Middle Trinity Groundwater Conservation District.
“The Texas Well Owner Network, or TWON, program is for Texas residents who depend on household wells for their water needs, so they can learn more about how to improve and protect their community water resources,” said Dr. Drew Gholson, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service program specialist and TWON coordinator, College Station. “The program was established to help well owners become familiar with Texas groundwater resources, septic system maintenance, well maintenance and construction, and water quality and treatment.”
He said participants may bring well-water samples to the training for screening. The cost is $10 per sample, due when samples are turned in.
“Water samples will be screened for nitrates, total dissolved solids and bacteria,” Gholson said.
Well owners who would like to have their well water sampled can pick up two sample containers from the AgriLife Extension offices in Erath, Comanche, Bosque or Coryell counties.
Bringing water samples to the training is not required, Gholson said, but those wanting to have water samples analyzed must attend.
Gholson said space is limited, so attendees are requested to register at http://twon.tamu.edu/training or by calling 979-845-1461 as soon as possible.
The training is one of several being conducted statewide through the Texas Well Owner Network project.
“The core content of this program is the same as other trainings, but the information is tailored to local water quality issues and aquifers,” Gholson said.
More than a million private water wells in Texas provide water to citizens in rural areas and increasingly to those living on small acreages at the growing rural-urban interface. Private well owners are independently responsible for monitoring the quality of their wells.

Submitting the Samples:
Refrigerate the sample and transport it to the workshop (in an ice chest) as soon after collection as possible (6 hours is best, but up to 24 hours).
Please Note: Samples should be collected within 24 hours before the training to ensure accurate results.
