It's National Groundwater Awareness Week, a good time to
schedule a checkup of your water well.
This weekend, did you turn back your clocks? Did you change the
batteries in your smoke detector, too? For many, the answer is yes.
We often use events, like Daylight Saving Time, to remind us to
take precautions, like checking our smoke detector.
It's National Groundwater Awareness Week, and Illinois Farm
Bureau asks homeowners and businesses to use this event as a
reminder - get a water well checkup. An annual examination is
even more imperative for IFB's rural members, who rely on wells for
their family and farm needs.
Here are a few checkup and maintaining recommendations from the
National Ground Water Association:
IFB also adds that preventative maintenance is usually less
costly than emergency maintenance. Good well maintenance - like
good car maintenance - can prolong the life of your well and
related equipment. Test your water whenever there is a change in
taste, odor, or appearance.

and proper use. From programs,
such as KIC 2025, to farmer-created policies, such as #38. Water
Quality, IFB is dedicated to protecting our water and serving
the families that use it.
