Low-Cost Well Testing Offered Again This Year

Door County residents with private wells are invited to participate in a groundwater study and receive discounted well water quality testing this spring. Well owners are asked to RSVP online at by March 22.

The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh program’s testing parameters included in the study are bacteria (Total coliforms/E. coli) and nitrate for a discounted cost of $30 for the first 300 registrants. Participants also will have the option to add arsenic and cumulative tests (pH, hardness, alkalinity and iron) for an additional $25.

Participants will receive a sampling kit in the mail, attend a virtual forum to learn how to collect samples, return the kit April 5 or 6 at designated drop-off locations, and receive individual well results and a countywide summary.
