No Major Issues Found in Water Quality Screenings | VideoAmy Fox | 7/18/2012
The North Central Research Extension Center in Minot offered free water quality screenings today.
The two-three minute screening included testing for nitrates, ph levels, total dissolved solids, and hardness.
While the research center reports data from today`s screenings, Agricultural Engineer Thom Scherer said it`s still a good idea to test your water.
"If it`s fine water, well, that`s kinda peace of mind for people. But, the other thing is with all the oil activity going on in the area, it kinda give you a baseline of some idea of what the water at this point and sometime in the future it changes and it doesn`t taste good and you have it tested, something is different from your previous test, then it might be due to some activity going on around them."
If you missed today`s program, the Williston Research Extension Center is screening water on July 24.
