About the Event
On Wednesday, January 22nd from 1 to 4 p.m. Green Mountain Conservation Group (GMCG) will host a Groundwater Education through Well Water Evaluation and Testing (GET WET!) training session lead by Tara Schroeder for volunteers at GMCG's Blue Heron House. Learn about common contaminants, health concerns and where to go for more information. At this training, participants will learn how they can volunteer to help bring this important drinking water protection program to local schools and libraries. Participants can bring in a sample of their home well water and test it for six parameters, including: chloride, conductivity, hardness, nitrates/nitrites, pH, and iron. This training is for both new volunteers and for teachers and volunteers looking for a refresher course. This can be for both those who would like to help us plan new educational programs about the aquifer, and those who would like to visit schools and perform an educational class. Following the training, there will be time to ask questions and set the classroom schedule for the upcoming program.

This program is made possible by generous support from the Pequawket Foundation.
