Study of Water Wells on Properties in Rural Alberta

I am a PhD student at the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (supervised by Dr. David Hall) investigating perceptions of water quality in rural Alberta associated with livestock. 

Participants in this study will be asked to answer a questionnaire (approximately 20 length) and submit a private water sample for microbiological testing (i.e., total coliforms and E. coli). To be eligible for this study a participant must be at least 18 years old and have a private water source (e.g., a water well, cistern) which they use for domestic purposes (e.g., drinking, washing, and cooking in the household). The questionnaire will address demographic information, private water use, livestock attributes, and questions related to water quality and risk.

A participant may complete the questionnaire in two ways:                                      

1.      A paper questionnaire mailed to them.

2.      An online questionnaire at the following link
