If you're a water well owner in Montague, Wise, Hood or Parker counties, there's a company that's looking for your help.

The Upper Trinity Groundwater Conservation District is studying more than 200 water wells but is looking to find even more participants.

The goal of the study, which is a joint effort with UT  Arlington, is to test if a variety of activities are contaminating the aquifer.

“Oil and gas activities, we have public water systems activities, we have large agriculture operations, we utilize chemicals that have the potential at least of contamination of the aquifers,” says Dr. Bob Patterson General Manager of The Upper Trinity Groundwater Conservation District

The aquifers are checked four times a year.

The testing would normally cost more 500 dollars per well, but if you participate in the study the work will be done free.
