The Working Well program provides well owners with the tools and information needed to properly care for their wells. 
 
"We will be talking about ground water and how it works, water quality and quantity testing, well protection (and) how to protect them from contamination, basic well maintenance and how to do water samples," stated spokesman Megan Lethbridge. 
 
So, what about concerns with wells being tainted?
 
"It depends on your area and that's kind of what this workshop will help with. How to protect your well from water contamination, what times of water you have and if you have manure particles to your well that could effect water quality or contamination into your well," mentioned Lethbridge. "Expertise will be provided by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, Alberta Environment and Parks and Alberta Health Services. There will be some licenses water well workers at the workshop."
 
Anybody who has a well can participate in these workshops. 
 
"Mountain View and Kneehill County are putting it on, so it's preferred if they're from there, but if someone wants to join in they are more than welcome to," outlined Lethbridge. "We have an ad out, they can register on our event link. They need to register by November 15 and if they want any information, they can go to workingwell.alberta.ca."
