The Texas Well Owner Network, TWON, was designed to deliver a science-based, community-responsive education curriculum related to protecting groundwater quality and aquifer integrity. It complements the successful Texas Watershed Stewards program by emphasizing best management practices. Efforts include voluntary private water well screenings and trainings so participants can better understand the relationships between practices in or near wells and the quality of water available for drinking and irrigation. Through the TWON, Texans learn about how to best protect their wells and surface waters in order to help prevent contamination of water bodies and underlying aquifers, helping safeguard the health of landowners and their families.
