The most commonly used water test is the Homeowner Package. If you are unsure of which tests to perform, this package includes the two most important tests to perform regularly on a well, (bacteria and nitrate). Water test bottles can be picked up here at the Adams UW Extension. Paperwork will be given to you to fill out, along with your pre-addressed water bottle. All water tests are sent to The Water & Environmental Analysis Lab in Stevens Point. For more information regarding water testing please visit Water & Environmental Analysis Lab
