Well Water Testing


BACTERIA TESTING  Total Coliforms are a group of bacteria that are commonly found in the soil, water, and in the digrestive tracts of humans and animals. E. coli is a type of coliform bacteria. When drinking water is positive for coliforms, the lab will also test for E. coli, which is harmful for human consumption.  When well water is positive for bacteria, it should not be used for drinking or cooking. The well should be chlorinated as soon as possible to clear out bacteria from the system. Results within 24 hours. Thirty dollars.  NITRATE TESTING  Nitrates are a chemical compound that are commonly found in vegetables, plants, and in groundwater.  When well water has a nitrate-nitrogen concentration of more than 10 mg/L, it is not safe to consume. High concentrations of nitrates in drinking water is very dangerous for pregnant women and babies. Nitrates can cause birth defects, "blue baby syndrome" (or methemoglobinemia), and thyroid disease. The well should be inspected by a licensed well driller, who will develop a plan in lowering nitrate levels in the water. Analysis every Tuesday and Thursday. Thirty dollars. Drop off hours are Monday through Wednesday 8 AM to 4 PM and Thursday 8 AM to 1 PM. Non-holiday weeks only. The lab is located at 2198 Glendale Avenue, Green Bay, Wisconsin, 54303
