UW-Oshkosh Tests Local Wells

Door County residents with private wells are encouraged to participate in a groundwater study this spring through UW-Oshkosh. The university has been offering discounted well-water-quality testing since 2019 with the goals of educating homeowners about the importance of testing well water and building a database of groundwater-quality data in Door County. 

The testing parameters included in the study are bacteria (total coliforms/E. coli [quantification]) and nitrate for a discounted cost of $30 for the first 300 registrants. Participants will also have the option to add arsenic and cumulative tests (pH, hardness, alkalinity and iron) for an additional $25.

To participate, register at by March 31. Find out more from Carmen Thiel Ebert at [email protected] or 920.424.0182.
