Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The Private Well Class is a free, online class for private well owners that has been very successful in reaching out nationwide to both private well owners and to those that serve them. Partners, that include managers of various private well owner outreach and sampling programs from around the country, have also provided insight regarding approaches and practices that have been successful from their own experiences. Applying the information gathered to date about best practices for reaching out to well owners, this presentation will discuss the motivations and factors that influence well owner participation, approaches that are more likely to get well owners engaged in outreach programs, and provide suggested best practices that will lead to a more informed well owner.
