Do you know if your drinking water is safe to consume? For the many Iowans who rely on private wells, the answer to this question is, "no."
Contaminants in your drinking water supply can lead to health problems in both humans and animals: sometimes right away, sometimes over the course of many years. In this workshop, you will learn about private wells and steps you can take to ensure your water is safe.
