Welcome to URI
Water Series Video
Entitled “Private Drinking Water Well Testing and Protection,” the
video can now be viewed online.
“Many private well owners do not realize that they are responsible for
testing and maintaining their private drinking water wells,” said Alyson
McCann, who coordinates URI’s Home*A*Syst Program. “Even fewer are
aware that they should be testing their well water annually. This program will
provide private well owners with information to make informed decisions about
protecting their drinking water supply.”
One in 10 Rhode Islanders rely on private wells for their drinking water supply.
The program contains interviews, graphics, and footage of a well being drilled
to help viewers understand the importance of private well protection. Interviews
with experts highlight how regular testing, maintenance and good housekeeping
practices are vital to protecting private drinking water supplies.
