Water Testing

      WHY TEST MY WELL WATER?

Many of the tests performed for private water supplies are used as indicators of water quality. If these results vary from the expected average, they can tell us which test to run to determine the exact problem. For more specific questions, contact the Winnebago County Health Department Laboratory.
