If you drink water from a well, it’s important to test it. What’s in your water can affect your health – whether it’s arsenic, lead, E. coli or another contaminant.
To test your well water:
1. Order a test kit from the Department of Health Laboratory by calling 800-660-9997 or 802-338-4736. The Health Department recommends the following testing schedule:
- Total coliform bacterial test - every year, $14
- Inorganic chemical test (arsenic, lead, nitrate and more) - every five years, $100
- Gross alpha radiation screen - every five years, $45
2. Follow the instructions on the kit to take samples of your water.
3. Drop off the samples at the St. Albans Office of Local Health.
- Drop-off hours: Monday through Friday, 7:45-11:30 a.m. (except State holidays)
- Drop-off location: St. Albans Local Health Office, 27 Federal Street, Suite 201, St. Albans, VT
