The Well Water Screening week-long event has been cancelled to minimize traffic in and out of the office. This event will be rescheduled.
To celebrate World Water Day 2021, we will be screening well water samples for nitrates and nitrites. This FREE screening is open to everyone who uses a private well for drinking water.
Samples from drinking water wells will be screened for nitrate and nitrite. The screening is open to everyone who uses a personal well for drinking water. Bring your sample to the Conservation District office between 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at 5950 Portage Road in Portage. Additional information and forms are available
Please follow the directions below to sample your well. Collect samples just before getting them to the sample drop-off. Samples should be less than 48 hours old for a valid nitrate result.
Your sample can usually be screened while you wait. If staff are not available, you will be called with your results. Please include a convienient phone number on your sample information form where you can be reached.
