Well Water Testing:
Over 15% of Americans rely on their own private drinking water supplies. There are over 800,000 private wells in Wisconsin alone. Wells can be safe, dependable sources of water if sited wisely and built correctly, but individual owners must take special precautions to ensure the protection and maintenance of this water supply.
At a minimum, check your well every spring to make sure there are no mechanical problems. Test it once each year for total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, and pH levels. If you suspect other contaminants, you should test for those as well.
Water testing kits may be picked up from the Kewaunee County Public Health Department during regular business hours. Water samples are mailed directly to the State Lab of Hygiene for analysis. The cost of the analysis depends on the kind(s) of tests requested. See the Kewaunee County Well Water Testing webpage for more information.
Visit the CDC website for more information on safe swimming and recreational water illnesses.
