Free Water Well Monitoring on Jan.27th

0 60

Hiram - Concerned Citizens Ohio/ Hiram free monthly private water well monitoring will take place on January 7th in the Community Room (downstairs) of the Hiram Christian Church, 6868 Wakefield Road, Hiram, OH 44234 (corner of State Routes 700, 82, 305).

We will be using Sierra Club meters to test for “indicators” of water quality. For accurate readings, your sample should be taken as directly from the well as possible— before any treatment and within an hour before we test it. For a sample “fresh from the well,” drain the water sitting in your pipes by running any household cold water for about 10 minutes before you collect your sample (from the well head or from a faucet on your pump). Use a clean, wide-mouthed, covered glass container that holds about 8 oz.

Come at 7:00 pm. We’ll be running videos with experts explaining the hydrofracture (“fracking”) shale drilling and why it produces waste. You can stay as long as you find the videos interesting, while you’re waiting for your water to be tested. For more information contact Gwen Fischer at 330-569-7863 or concernedcitizensohio@gmail.com.
