Learn about wells and safe drinking water

Mark Boone

How does groundwater move? Where is it found in Prince Edward County? How should you care for your private well? What can you do to help keep your drinking water safe? Answers to these questions and more will be discussed at a free information session on Monday, Nov. 29 at 7 pm at the Bloomfield Hall.  The event has been organized by The Prince Edward Stewardship Council and Quinte Conservation.

Mark Boone, Quinte Conservation’s Hydrogeologist will be on hand to de-mystify groundwater science.  Technical staff from the Health Unit and Prince Edward Stewardship Council will also be in attendance.

“Approximately 60 per cent of people in Prince Edward County depend on private water supplies for their drinking water so this evening should be of interest to many,” says Boone.

The Prince Edward Stewardship Council is a volunteer group that works toward achieving and maintaining a healthy environment in Prince Edward County.

Quinte Conservation is a community based environmental protection agency that serves 18 municipalities in the watersheds of the Moira, Napanee and Salmon Rivers and Prince Edward County.  It provides cost effective environmental expertise and leadership that develops and delivers programs to ensure the healthy coexistence between the community, the environment and its economy.  More information is available at
