Clearing House for Montana Water Information

Water Videos on YouTube
The MSU Extension Water Quality Program has created a set of videos on various water topics that can be viewed via YouTube. If your home well is impaired by iron bacteria, how do you shock chlorinate it? Which of the rules of thumb for managing a septic system are based on science, and which are old wives’ tales? You had your water tested – now how can you interpret all those numbers? Nothing fancy, but these videos do a fine job of demonstrating some of the solutions to water issues faced by ordinary Montanans. Visit the MSU Extension Water Quality Program YouTube Channel to view all of their videos.
