Obtaining a Water Sample for Bacterial Analysis
This fact sheet is one in a series of fifteen for private water well owners. The one- to four-page fact sheets will be assembled into a two-pocket folder entitled Private Well Owner's Guide. The titles will also be a part of the Changing Rural Landscapes project whose goal is to educate exurban, small acreage residents. The authors have made every effort to align the fact sheets with the proposed Arizona Cooperative Extension booklet "An Arizona Well Owner's Guide to Water Sources, Quality, Sources, Testing, Treatment, and Well Maintenance" by Artiola and Uhlman. The private well owner project was funded by both the University of Arizona's Water Sustainability Program-Technology and Research Initiative Fund and the USDA-CSREES Region 9 Water Quality Program.
