Drinking Well Water
Starting in 2020 the Water Board is requiring all drinking water wells on enrolled parcels to be tested for nitrate-nitrite as N.
Several options are available to the wel owner to have wells sampled:
- Sample themselve according to EPA protocols and provide to ELAP certified Lab for testing. Contact a ELAP certified Lab for more details (provide link to list of labs)
- Hire the ELAP certified Lab to take sample and test (provide link of ELAP certified labs)
- Volunteer well in Coalition Trend Monitoring program, following verification the well meets the criteria to be in the program.
