Protecting Our Well Water

There will be an important presentation on Oct. 5 on the subject of “Protecting Our Well Water.”

The date is Sunday, October 5, at 7 PM at the York Public Library.


Speakers will be Dr. Robert Marvinney, Director, Maine Geologic Survey and Gail Darrell, Director, New England Office of the Community Environmental Legal Defense.  Patty Hymanson, York resident and physician, will facilitate this event.

Dr. Marvinney and Ms. Darrell will talk about the origins of groundwater — the water we drink — and threats to the quality of our well water. Threats to our wells can include runoff from salted roads, fertilizer from golf courses, arsenic and other pollutants, and extraction of water for commercial use or sale.

Learn about what we can do to protect our wells from the effects of pollution and extraction.

Everyone is welcome.

Refreshments served.
