Educators

If you would like to conduct a Know Your Well Water: Test, Understand, and Protect workshop, please contact Anne Baird at: 614-292-8603 or by e-mail: baird.41@osu.edu

We can provide materials including a sample press release, agenda, power point slide show, hand-outs, and evaluation.  We may also be able to help you locate instructors for the workshop. Below is a sample power point slide set used in our pilot workshops in 2014.  This was a three hour evening workshop co-taught by staff from ODH and OSU Extension. Participants received a well test and interpretation of the test prior to the workshop.  The workshop addresses five core areas including: 1. Where to go for information and assistance;  2. Well stewardship (e.g., well type, source water, well maintenance); 3. Rules and regulations (enforceable standards for bacteria and testing requirements); 4. Safety and health risks; and 5. Testing and treament basics.
