Calling All Well Owners: Southlake to Host Water Well Workshop

The City of Southlake is proud to partner with the Texas Well Owners Network to host a “Well Educated” Workshop on Tuesday, February 5.

Are you new to well ownership? Have you had a well for decades but want to learn more?  This workshop will focus mainly on water wells, but will also include important information about maintaining septic systems.

“While Southlake is an urban community, we still have many residents who have active water wells and septic systems. We are thrilled to be able to bring this opportunity to Southlake for the first time!” says Environmental Coordinator Ashley Carlisle.

Date: Tuesday, February 5th

Time: 9am to 1pm

Location: 600 State St. (DPS Headquarters- Police Entrance)

Cost: Free for the workshop; $10 for water sample

The workshop itself is free, but if participants would like to have their sample of well water tested, they must pay a $10 fee when the sample is turned in. Samples will be tested for common pollutants like nitrate, total dissolved solids, arsenic, and E. coli. The sample should be collected no later than 24 hours in advance of the workshop for the most accurate results. Not sure how to collect the sample? Check out this video by the Texas Well Owners Network.

This workshop is open to the public. To register for the workshop, please visit

Important: Sample bottles must be picked up in advance at either the Texas A&M AgriLife office in Tarrant County or Dallas County since participants will need to bring their sample water with them to the workshop.
