We offer several testing packages for the private well owner. From a basic bacteriological analysis to a more comprehensive set of analyses.

These custom analysis packages are designed around the most common analytical requests received from clients. It should be noted, however, that no amount of testing will guarantee the absolute safety of your drinking water. What is required, is a thorough understanding of the circumstances affecting your source water.

Both the EPA and CDC have an exceptional wealth of information on Drinking Water Quality information at their Web sites.
