PRIVATE WELL WATER TESTING

 

Water sample pick-up at Sherman County
Health Department

 

April 20th @ 8:30AM

 

It is recommended for private water well owners to test their water every 1-3 years for bacteria and nitrates.

More frequent testing should be considered if:

  • Change in the taste, odor, or appearance of the well water, or if a problem occurs such as a broken well cap, inundation by floodwaters, or a new contamination source
  • Well has a history of bacterial contamination
  • Septic system has recently malfunctioned
  • Family members or house guests have recurrent incidents of gastrointestinal illness
  • An infant is living in the home
  • To monitor the efficiency and performance of home water treatment equipment
