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.


Important Announcement 2 – WA Program Launch

Our Water Ambassador (WA) Program will launch in early 2019!

WAs are volunteers who have been trained on the ins and outs of our water supply. The WA will come to your home, provide on-site assessments of household water filter systems and bottled water, and answer your water-related questions. They can also collect water samples for lab testing of locally common contaminants.

To learn more about the program, and to register your early interest,
