The Private Well Course

Course Overview:

Homeowners in small communities and rural areas without a public water supply often lack appropriate understanding of best practices for managing, operating, and protecting their private well.

In a nationwide technical assistance and training initiative, funded by a grant to the Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP) from the US Environmental Protection Agency, a step-by-step education framework has been developed to assist well owners and other stakeholders in understanding groundwater hydrology, well fundamentals, well care best practices, and finding assistance locally.

The Private Well Class online course is designed to help users better understand how to properly care for their water well, to ensure their water remains safe to drink. By understanding the basic science of water wells and following best practices to maintain and protect your water supply, homeowners can ensure a safe water supply and help extend the life of their home water well.

The Private Well Class online course leverages web-based and publicly-available content to educate on this important health topic.  This course compiles the ten modules from the program’s popular email-based course into one reference.

The Illinois State Water Survey and the Illinois Water Resources Center, at the University of Illinois, have collaboratively developed the curriculum for this program, under contract with RCAP.
