Calumet County Private Well Testing Day

The Annual Calumet County Private Well Testing Day will take place on May 7, 2018.  If you or someone you know has a private well and would like to have it tested, please consider participating in this event.  This is a county-wide program open to anyone who has a private well in the county. 

Please register online for the event at  You may register more than once if you have more than one well.  A limited amount of kits are available, so please register early to reserve your kit.  

The benefits of the program include bottle pick up & drop off convenience, free shipping and an education night held in June.  The education night is an opportunity to learn how to read your results, as well as how to resolve any problems with your water, including plumbing, proper well maintenance and at home-practices to improve your drinking water. 

It is important to know the quality of your drinking water by testing on an annual basis for bacteria and nitrates - at a minimum.
