WELLness Project: participants needed

Friends of the Salmon River & Friends of the Napanee River are assisting Queen’s University with this research project in our region. We encourage you to participate if you can!

Calling all private well owners in the municipality of the Town of Greater Napanee and Stone Mills Township.

The ‘WELLness Project’ aims to increase the understanding of knowledge, perceptions and behaviours regarding private well water use and management, with the goal of developing specific educational resources for use by private well owners. The project is the brainchild of Sarah Lavallee, a PhD candidate in Environmental Studies at Queen’s University.

We invite you to participate in one-on-one interviews in which you will be asked general questions about your opinions and experiences with your private well and well water. There is no need to be an expert on your well in order to participate! Participation will require 30 – 40 minutes of your time and will be conducted virtually (via Zoom, Microsoft Teams or phone call).

Requirements: Participants must own a private well on a property in the municipality of the Town of Greater Napanee or Stone Mills Township and must be 18 years of age or older. A short pre-screening survey will be administered prior to scheduling an interview to ensure eligibility.

If you wish to participate in this study, or have any questions, please contact Sarah Lavallee at Queen’s University at 12sml7@queensu.ca.
