The Ohio State University Extension Service says we all should take a closer look at our water supplies.
According to the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, many people that live outside of a rural water district or village, must rely on private wells for drinking water.
State officials are saying that private well owners really should test their well water regularly, but they also say that finding a test site, and then interpreting the results, and be confusing.
They remind people that the Ohio State University Extension, Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency have cooperated to develop a free online well water interpretation tool. The well water interpretation tool is located on the OSU Extension’s Ohio Watershed Network at http://ohiowatersheds.osu.edu. The website allows quick access to well water information on many subjects.
