How do I test my well?
While most wells provide a clean, safe supply of water, most contaminants cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted. Therefore you should test your well water on a regular basis. Contact a certified laboratory for testing supplies, collect the sample according to directions provided by the laboratory, return the sample to the laboratory within the required time limits. The laboratory should contact you with the results. In addition, Tri-County Health Department's Water Specialist, Elaine Hassinger, can provide information on the best type of test to run and the meaning of the results. Elaine can be reached at 720 200 1583.
