State and community organizations are equipping private water well owners with resources to maintain their wells and test their water for safety during this free seminar.
Free water sampling kits (total coliform/E.coli) and instructions will be available for well owners at the event. Well owners must collect the sample and return it to the nearest available public health unit for testing. The samples will be analyzed for total coliform and E. coli bacteria by the Louisiana Department of Health’s Office of Public Health laboratories. Participants will receive results via mail or email along with a follow-up phone consultation to discuss their results.
Sponsors include the Louisiana departments of Health, Agriculture and Forestry and Natural Resources, Louisiana State University, Southern University and several other community organizations including the Central Louisiana Economic Development Alliance and Communities Unlimited.
