Few educational opportunities exist to teach rural homeowners water supply management. A correspondence program entitled Quality Water for Home and Farm was designed to prepare a group of teachers to fill the gap. The program objective was to train county extension agents in water quality and management principles and how to use educational materials to teach farmers and homeowners those principles through a distance education training program. Twenty six of the 72 county and district extension agents (36%) who enrolled completed the correspondence program. Participants gained increased understanding of water quality principles in 20 major areas.
