Drinking Water Clinic

Does your water come from a well, spring, or cistern?

Do you want to learn more about the quality of your water?

How it works:

  1. At a brief informational meeting, pick up a sample kit and get instructions to collect your household water sample.
  2. Collect a sample from your tap at home and complete a short questionnaire.
  3. Drop off sample at a designated location and time.
  4. About 4 weeks later, come back to get your confidential test results, an explanation of what the numbers mean, and information on how to handle any problems that are present.

Cost: $50 (includes sample analysis cost to test for selected chemical and bacteriological constituents – includes E. Coli, total Coliform bacteria, lead, nitrate, copper, iron, fluoride, sulfate, sodium, total dissolved solids, arsenic, pH, and manganese)

Collection Date: Wednesday, August 26th from 7-10am at designated locations
