​Water Testing

If your drinking water comes from a private well it is important to have it tested three times a year. The health unit will test your water for free. Water samples are tested for two types of bacteria, coliform and E. coli. If these bacteria are in you water, it tells you that surface water may be entering your well and your water may be unsafe to drink and could cause illness.

You must use a specific sample bottle or your water sample will not be tested.​
