Pivate water wells should be tested annually. The Texas Well Owner Network, with support by the Frio and La Salle County offices the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, the Texas Water Resources Institute and the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board, is providing a water well screening day for area residents on November 2, 2012 at the Frio County AgriLife Extension Office 400 S Pecan Street, Pearsall. Samples must be turned in by 5 p.m. on or before November 1, 2012. Samples from private water wells will be screened for common contaminants including fecal coliform bacteria, nitrates, and high salinity. The cost is $10 per sample.
