The Lake County Health Department in March is offering several activities in observance of National Groundwater Awareness Week, including an open house from 4 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 4, at the Lake County Central Permit Facility, 500 W. Winchester Road, Libertyville. Experts will discuss and answer questions about well water, such as why well water may have a funny taste or smell, where well water comes from and where it goes, and what tests are necessary to ensure it is safe to drink. Those who attend can participate in drawings to win a free bacterial analysis of their well water. They can also pick up water testing kits. Call (847) 377-8020 or email to HealthEHS@lakecountyil.gov.
