by Ron Kurtus (updated 19 February 2012)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. If the well is deep enough, how can bacteria get in the water?

It can leak in through the well head

Bacteria cannot live in deep wells

It can come from plants growing in the well

2. What does the pipe diameter have to do with the amount of chlorine to use?

So you know what size bleach bottle will fit in the pipe

The diameter determines the amount of water in the pipe

You need to know in case you have to climb down the well

3. Why run the water until it does not smell anymore?

So you need to use more bleach

That indicates that most of the chlorine has been removed

It is an age-old tradition that no one knows the reason

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in being Healthy. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Good water is most important for good health
