Private well owners are encouraged to have their well water tested regularly, but when they do, they’re often stumped when trying to decipher the lab results.
And with more Ohio well water being analyzed under a mandate that shale energy companies provide such tests for any wells within 1,500 feet of proposed horizontal drilling sites, more Ohioans have been left scratching their heads when trying to interpret the findings.
That’s why Ohio State University Extension has teamed up with the Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to provide a free online Well Water Interpretation Tool.
The tool is available through OSU Extension’s Ohio Watershed Network at http://ohiowatersheds.osu.edu. Click on “Know Your Well Water.”
Assistant professor, Mazeika Sullivan along with his students talk about the importance of wetlands and water.
