Penn State Extension is holding a webinar from 7 to 8 p.m. on Monday, April 8, to review how to properly maintain your well and spring systems and how to test your drinking water.

Testing supplies will be distributed to participants after the webinar, with only one test per household permitted. Using a pre-paid mailer, participants must return their water samples by a specified date.

The following parameters will be tested: bacteria, nitrate, manganese, lead, copper, barium, sodium and arsenic. All these tests are related to potential health risks and can only be detected through water testing. A Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection accredited laboratory will do all testing.

This is for residents with a private water supply (well, spring, cistern).
