The Texas Well Owner Network is hosting a water well screening May 14 in Refugio to give area residents the opportunity to have their well water screened.
The screening will be from 8:30–10 a.m. at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office for Refugio, 414B N. Alamo St.
A meeting explaining screening results will be at 6 p.m. May 15 at the Refugio County Community Center, 305 Swift St. in Refugio.
The screening is presented by AgriLife Extension, Healthy Texas and Texas Water Resources Institute, or TWRI, in partnership with the AgriLife Extension office in Refugio County. Healthy Texas is an initiative of AgriLife Extension and the Texas A&M University Health Science Center.
John Smith, AgriLife Extension program specialist, College Station, said area residents wanting to have their well water screened should pick up a sample bag, bottle and instructions from the AgriLife Extension office in Refugio County.
“It is very important that only sampling bags and bottles from the AgriLife Extension office be used and all instructions for proper sampling are followed to ensure accurate results,” Smith said. The samples must be turned in by 10 a.m. on the day of the screening. The cost for each sample is $10.
