Like annual preventative health screenings, an annual well test is an important part of maintaining good health. Local Health Departments, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Center for Disease Control all recommend that private well owners test their drinking water annually for bacteria and nitrates, and periodically for any other contaminants that are known to be of local concern. Tests offered through this program include PFAS, Volatile Organic Compounds, Gross Alpha (uranium/radium), arsenic, and lead. Testing can be expensive, but RHA has established a program that provides residents of the Raritan Headwaters region water tests by a state-certified lab at reasonable rates. Information is not shared with any party other than the homeowner and results data can be used to assess groundwater quality in our area. Join us at the Roxbury Library on December 10th to learn more about well water quality in the Roxbury area and how to protect your family’s drinking water supply.

Please click the link below if you’d like to pre-order a water test kit (not required for attendance) for pick up on December 10th.  If you need help deciding which tests to order for your well, please don’t hesitate to contact the Raritan Headwaters Well Test Office at 908-234-1852 ext 401. We’d be happy to walk you through the options and discuss your specific concerns.
