The Private Well Conference

2nd National Private Well Conference to be held in Harrisburg, PA

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, scheduled for May 21-23, 2019 in Harrisburg, PA, aims 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 will leverage those experts to provide new information and insights to help you in your efforts to educate and provide support to private well owners.
