Residents are encouraged to take advantage of free drinking water screening clinics offered by St. Croix County which screens drinking water samples for nitrate for FREE! This program is offered to educate private well owners on how to monitor and protect their drinking water supply.

If you plan to attend the event, you must wear a mask and practice social distancing amongst participants and staff by following the signs and taped floors at the event.

The clinic is open to any St. Croix County residents who are interested in testing their private well. Participants are asked to bring in about eight ounces of water in a closed container, preferably glass, collected within 24 hours of the clinic. It is important to run the tap for 10 to 15 minutes on cold at full flow before collecting the sample.

Residents with water treatment systems, such as reverse osmosis, are encouraged to bring in a sample pre and post treatment. Residents are also encouraged to bring in samples for friends, family, or neighbors who are not able to attend the event themselves.
