Clean, healthful water is a necessity for everyone. Therefore, in areas where there is not a municipal water system, individual wells are necessary.
Well water safety is maintained through registration of water system contractors, inspections, water sampling for laboratory analysis, technical assistance and public education. Sanitarians insure that well development meets State Code requirements to reduce the possibilities of ground water contamination. Water hauler vehicles are also inspected annually.

To schedule a bacteria test for your private water system, contact the health department during normal business hours. Samples are taken Monday afternoons and Tuesday mornings. Information regarding well disinfection can be found by clicking here.
A total coliform bacteria sample costs between $45.00 and $65.00. Other samples can be taken; call the office for prices.
