Floridians are no strangers to hurricanes, with the state facing peak season from August to October. Hurricanes are one of nature’s most powerful storms, producing strong winds, storm surge flooding and heavy rainfall.
When heavy rains bring flooding to an area, people don’t often think about the damage caused to their private drinking wells. If your well has been flooded, such as your well head was surrounded by flood waters or it was submerged in flood waters, your private well might be in danger of contamination from pollutants found in the flood waters.
Understanding how to properly care for your private well before and after a storm is not only an issue of public health but also well longevity and safety.
Join us for our webinar focused on understanding caring for private wells before and after a storm or hurricane. This webinar, part of the Florida Well Owner Network (FWON), aims to educate Florida residents about well water quality and best management practices to ensure well and groundwater protection.
This webinar will take place on Tuesday, July 13 at 2:00 PM. Registration is required and can be done here: https://ufl.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_fg-oNUagRayZdFydJHpFRw
