WELL WATER QUALITY SEARCH

The tools below provide a search for well water quality test results. It allows you to locate reported water quality data in our database by searching specific addresses, a range of addresses, or a combination of township and section. The chemicals analyzed may include nitrate as nitrogen, nitrite as nitrogen, fluoride, chloride, hardness, sodium, iron, sulfate, and arsenic. These sample results are a collection of water quality data compiled for the last 30 years. The samples may have been collected by Environmental Health staff, a consultant or engineer, a realtor, a homeowner or well driller, for such purposes as a property sale, new construction or routine monitoring.

In the event you need additional information about the results of your search or for other issues resulting from the usage of this search tool, please contact us.
