Should you get your water tested?Monday, December 12, 2016
Many residents rely on drilled, dug, or bored wells to supply water for drinking and other household uses. Groundwater is a shared resource that crosses property lines, and contamination from one well can put other wells at risk.
Test your well water for bacteria at least three times per year (spring, summer, and fall). Also test whenever you experience quality or quantity issues (e.g. drought conditions.) Free testing of private water supplies for bacteria is available through your nearest Hastings Prince Edward Public Health office: Water Sample Drop-Off Schedule for Hastings and Prince Edward Counties.
