Free Well Water Testing Available
If you sustained losses or damage due to wildfires beginning September 7, 2020, you may be eligible for free private well testing.
Beginning in February 2021, The Oregon Health Authority will provide vouchers for private or "domestic" water testing to residential fire impacted well owners. Vouchers will cover 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.
Before testing, follow these steps to recover your well after the wildfire
