Test my water
We offer free standard testing and subsidized arsenic testing to study groups, community groups and to certain other groups who have made special alternative arrangements, to allow us to better monitor the water sources that serve large numbers of users. If you are testing any water source where many people’s health may be affected and/or if you are unable to pay, we may be able to test for free.
Private clients are charged a fee for their testing – money that helps us to ensure we can continue to do the work we do.
HOW CAN I GET MY WATER TESTED?
If testing as a private client, then first consider which type of testing you would like. (If you are part of a local study group, community group, or if you have made special alternative arrangements for testing, continue to step 2.)
Step 1 – Consider which type of testing you would like
STEP 2 – COMPLETE AN ONLINE FORM TO SEND US YOUR DETAILS
Please note, if you would like to test your water through Caminos de Agua's Lab, you may need to know your GPS coordinates.
Please click here for more information on how to find your coordinates.
STEP 3 – COLLECT YOUR SAMPLE(S)
Once you have completed the online form above to send us your details, then you're ready to collect your water sample(s)!
We recommend collecting sample(s) on the same day, or at most 2 days before dropping them off at the lab.
Therefore, ideally, samples should be taken on a Sunday, Monday or Tuesday before drop-off on the Tuesday afternoon, when the lab is open.
To see collection instructions for the testing you have selected, please click on the relevant button below.
STEP 4 – DROP OFF YOUR SAMPLE(S) AT OUR LAB
All water samples should be dropped-off on TUESDAYS BETWEEN 2 PM AND 5 PM. There is no need to book an appointment. Please do not come at another time, as there may not be anyone at the lab to receive your sample(s). If coming at this time is a problem for you, then please contact us using the details below.
If you chose to pay by cash when submitting your details, then please remember to bring cash with you when you come. Exact change is appreciated.
