Have You Tested Your Drinking Water Lately?

Even if your water tastes and smells fine, that doesn't always mean that it is safe to drink. As a homeowner with a private well, it is YOUR responsibility to make sure that your water is safe for you and your family to drink.

UConn Extension has a new program to help you get your water tested. We are providing low-cost water testing and educational workshops in rural areas of Connecticut. The first workshop will provide information about groundwater, your well, and potential contaminants. We will then schedule follow-up meetings to collect your water sample and help you interpret the results.

Check the schedule below for upcoming workshop dates and locations, and click the link to sign up. There is no fee to attend the workshop, but if you would like to have your water tested it will cost $50 (this is normally over $200).

This work is supported by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Rural Health Safety and Education program, project #2022-04833.
