Free Drinking Water Nitrate Testing August 17

A free drinking water screening clinic will be held on Wednesday, August 17th at St. Croix County Service Center – New Richmond, WI 54017 from 12:00 – 5:00 pm.

Residents are encouraged to take advantage of free drinking water screening clinics offered by St. Croix County. This program is offered to educate homeowners on how to monitor and protect their drinking water supply. Participants are asked to bring in about eight ounces of water in a closed container, preferably glass, collected within 24 hours of the clinic event. It is important to run the tap for 10 to 15 minutes on cold at full flow before collecting the sample. The nitrate analysis results are provided on-site, and staff will be available to discuss and interpret the results and advise further action as needed.

Residents with two wells may bring a sample from each well. Residents with reverse osmosis systems may bring a sample of untreated water, as well as a sample of treated water to compare results.
