Doane Class Offers 'Test Your Well' Event

Doane College Test Your Well Event

When:  Wednesday, December 8th, 4-7PM
Where:  Perry Campus Center

On Wednesday, Dec. 8, Doane's Environmental Science class will offer free testing of water from private wells. The 'Test Your Well' event is scheduled from 4-7 p.m. in Perry Hall of the Crete Campus' Perry Campus Center.

Participants may bring in one cup of well water in a sealed glass container to be tested free of charge. (City water will not be tested.) Students will also provide information about groundwater, private wells, nitrate and pollution prevention.

Excessive levels of nitrates can lead to serious health problems, including blue baby syndrome, intestinal disorders, and cancer. 

Test Your Well is a program of the Groundwater Foundation. The Doane event is sponsored by the Doane Environmental Science class, Public Health Solutions Public Health Department, and the Groundwater Foundation.
