Well Water Test Kits Available to Private Well Owners

The province is providing free well water chemistry test kits to private well owners throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.

There are still more than 2,000 kits available. To date, over 3,000 test kits have been distributed and over 1,000 samples have been tested for potential contaminants.

The kits are available through various Digital Government and Service NL regional offices.

This initiative provides well owners with detailed information about chemical levels in their drinking water. The goal of this project is to help lower health risks related to consuming groundwater with naturally occurring contaminants. Examples of naturally occurring contaminants include arsenic, uranium, fluoride, etc.
