​Water Testing

If your drinking water comes from a private well, we will test your water for free. The test will look for harmful total coliforms and Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria.​

We recommend testing your well water three times a year, every year.

We will help you understand the results and provide well maintenance and water treatment options.
