Oklahoma Well Owner Network Set to Host Water Screening and Training
Oklahoma State University students are set to conduct well water analysis and a short training for citizens in Greer County. Samples will be accepted at the Greer County Extension Office at 108 S Pennsylvania Ave Mangum, OK 73554 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Monday June 27th. The results will be provided Thursday June 30th, along with a short informative presentation at 11 a.m. at the Mangum Expo Center.
Well owners who would like to have their well water analyzed for free should contact the Greer County Extension Office to learn how to collect their sample. The purpose of the well water screening and training is to help well owners better understand and safeguard their drinking water quality.
“In 2018, we surveyed citizens across Oklahoma on what their biggest water resource concerns were” said Kevin Wagner, Oklahoma Water Resource Center Director. “Consistently across the state, Oklahoman’s key concern was drinking water quality."
Water samples will be screened for nitrates, total dissolved solids, arsenic, pH and bacteria. Sample results and training, which is free and open to the public, will be June 30th at 11 a.m. at the Mangum Expo Center at 31080 E County Road 1470 Mangum, OK 73554.
This program is brought to you free of charge by OSU Rural Renewal Scholars, Greer County Extension, with financial support provided by the Oklahoma Water Resources Center. We encourage you to bring in your samples and attend this event.
