Water Testing

The E.P.A. recomend that well water is tested annually or immediately if water sources develop a noticible change in color, odor or taste.
Poor water quality can have some serious effects on the health of your family.  In addition to illness, a variety of less serious problems such as taste, color, odor and staining of clothes or fixtures are signs of possible water quality problems. Other things to think about include the nearness of your water well to septic systems and the composition of your home’s plumbing materials.
Test Packages
If your drinking water does not come from a public water system, or you get your drinking water from a household well, you alone are responsible for assuring that it is safe.

Why are there Contaminants in my drinking water?

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

The sources of dringing water (both tap watter and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, resevoirs, springs and wells.  As water travels over the surface of the land and through the ground, it dissolves naturally occuring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presemce of animals or human activity.
