Mara Tippett, RHA Watershed Scientist, and private well testing and treatment professionals discussed the municipal role in providing safe drinking water programs as an essential public health service. While commercial water companies are required by law to test customers’ water, owners of private wells are on their own. Regular monitoring is critically important to ensuring a safe water supply. Local efforts to provide community-supported testing programs help prevent exposure to drinking water contaminants by making the testing process convenient and affordable. Participants learned more about Raritan Headwaters’ Community Well Testing Program and our work to protect groundwater resources. An overview of common drinking water contaminants including associated health risks and recommended treatments was also given.
