Can Tri-County Health Department test my well water and do I have to pay for this?
Tri-County Health Department can provide two types of tests for your well water. For testing, contact the Commerce City Office at 303 288 6816. A routine test is free and covers the hardness, specific conductance, nitrate, and fluoride levels in your well water. A BAC-T test costs the well owner $15.00 and determines if there is a bacterial problem with the well water. These tests do not analyze for RMA contaminants. Tri-County Health Department, in cooperation with the State, is tracking new well permits to insure that new wells are not being installed where known RMA contamination is present.
