Oklahoma Water Resources Center to offer free water well testing
Tuesday, October 17, 2023
Oklahoma well owners are on their way to healthier drinking water this fall thanks to the Oklahoma Well Owner Network.
The program, led by the Oklahoma Water Resources Center and Oklahoma State University Extension, provides free residential well water testing and training to rural counties in Oklahoma through a $200,000 grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and a $350,000 grant from the USDA-National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Rural Health and Safety Education Program.
“In 2018, we surveyed citizens across Oklahoma on what their biggest water resource concerns were,” said Dr. Kevin Wagner, water resource center director. “Consistently across the state, Oklahomans’ key concern was drinking water quality."
