Water Well Testing


To Help Ensure Safe Drinking Water…


Safe wells are most likely to provide safe drinking water. 

The biggest problem is usually the well – the groundwater is generally OK.  A safe well has the following characteristics:


  1. Located out of the pathway of pollutants
  2. Constructed to meet current standards
  3. Has a written protection plan for the well which is followed
  4. Has annual maintenance which includes checking the well, shock chlorination and then doing a verifying water test.


Please contact this office for private water well testing.  We will come to your property and collect water samples to test for bacteria, nitrates, lead, chloride, fluoride, iron, manganese or to conduct a pH screening depending upon your request.
