March 13th is "Know Your Well Day".
Time to get familiar with your drinking water.

Did you know???
More than 75 percent of Wyoming’s population relies on groundwater for part or all of their drinking water supply. This water comes from more than 90,000 wells. Around a farm, ranch, or rural home-site, there are many potential contaminants that should concern the owner.

There is no government agency (federal, state, or local) that regulates water quality from private drinking water wells in Wyoming. This means that the water quality of these wells is not regularly checked unless you take action to sample and test your water and protect and maintain your well.

National Ground Water Awareness Week - The March 9-15: The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) started National Ground Water Awareness Week thirteen years ago, to educate the public about the importance of groundwater and water well stewardship.  One very important reason for such stewardship is to protect public health by protecting groundwater quality and reducing risks to potable groundwater supplies.
