The open house, which runs from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m., will feature experts on hand to discuss Water Treatment (Absolute Water), Septic System Maintenance (Agrilife Extension), Gardening (Travis County Master Gardeners), Tree Care (Texas Heritage Tree Care), Water Quality Testing (Edwards Aquifer Research and Data Center Water Quality Lab) and, of course, Hydrogeology (Aquifer District staff).

Officials said in a statement, “Well owners in the District can preregister and pick up supplies from now until the day before the checkup. The first 50 well owners will be able to bring in their water samples … to have water screened for pH, nitrate, salinity, and bacteria. After hours drop-off available starting 5 p.m. Wednesday. Samples must be taken less than 24 hours before they are analyzed to give reliable results.” The district is located at 1124 Regal Row in Manchaca. Those interested can learn more here.
