The provincial government of Ontario has partnered with four organizations to train well contractors and educate private well owners on well construction, maintenance and safety.

The funding includes approximately $494,000 (USD) for Sir Sanford Fleming College to develop leading-edge curriculum for well contractors and technicians; and $619,000 for Green Communities, in partnership with the Ontario Ground Water Association and the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario, to lead an 18-month community-based education program for private well owners.

In addition, the province is providing around $132,000 to the Centre for Research and Technology to develop innovative approaches to improve and extend the life of water wells, and to evaluate the state of the province's water well infrastructure and make recommendations for improvement.
