Domestic Well Testing after Wildfires
If you sustained losses or damage due to wildfires, consider having your well water tested. We recommend testing for Arsenic, Nitrate, Bacteria, Lead, and, depending on damage assessment results, Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and Xylenes (BTEX).
Even if the fire did not directly damage your well, or if you have repaired damage to your well, testing is an important step in recovering your property.
Well Testing Voucher Project: We are seeking resources to continue offering testing vouchers to people with domestic wells impacted by the 2020 wildfires. Please let us know if you would like to be contacted if we do receive additional funding. You can leave us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
