Safe drinking water is a growing concern, especially for private well owners in Central Minnesota. We are    providing free water testing for households that rely on their own private systems and the water quality at their kitchen sink.

Nitrate-nitrogen (referred to as nitrate) is a common contaminant found in many wells throughout Minnesota. Shallow wells, dug wells, and wells with damaged or leaking casings are the most vulnerable to nitrate contamination. Major sources of nitrate contamination can be from fertilizers, animal waste, and human sewage. It is highly recommended to test your drinking water supply on a regular basis.
