DRINKING WATER TESTING

Private Drinking Water Testing (General Public)

The Environmental Health Section works with the Lab to perform drinking water testing for the general public.  Water samples are collected by a qualified Environmental Health Specialist and brought to our Lab, or another qualified Lab, for testing.  Common tests include bacterial (Ex: coliform, E.coli), inorganic (Ex: Lead, iron, zinc), nitrate/-ite, and more.  Fees are required for testing.

Public Drinking Water Testing (Public Water Suppliers)

The Lab also performs drinking water testing for public water suppliers.  Public water suppliers include campgrounds, motels, churches, schools, restaurants, mobile home parks, subdivisions, and convenience stores.  Water samples may be brought to the Lab by the owner of the public water supply.  Samples will then be tested at our Lab or another qualified Lab.  Common tests include bacterial (Ex: coliform, E.coli), nitrate/-ite, and more.  Fees are required for testing.

Water samples are accepted for testing on Monday-Wednesday, 8 AM- 5 PM.  No water samples will be accepted on a Friday or the day before a government holiday.
