Many public health and groundwater experts who work with private well owners do so on a local or regional scale, providing assistance and education directly to consumers.
The 2019 Private Well Conference was held May 21-23, 2019 in Harrisburg, PA, aiming to bring together experts and practitioners to share their successes and experience for the benefit of the private well community. Through our unique position as managers of a national private well program, we have developed relationships around the country with experts and stakeholders. This conference leveraged those experts to provide new information and insights to help attendees in their efforts to educate and provide support to private well owners.
The 2.5 day agenda featured a mixture oral presentations from invited speakers, as well as panel discussions, a "lightning session", and opportunities for networking. Funding for this conference was provided by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP).
The conference was recorded and the videos are now available on YouTube:
