The Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation Department is taking registrations for its voluntary well water testing program. Homeowners can purchase one or all three different testing options to see if their well has contaminants such as bacteria, nitrates, and herbicide. Although the county cannot make homeowners test their wells through the program, conservationist Davina Bonness says the spring is a good time to see where their water is compared to last year.
A recharge often refers to the snowmelt and storms in the spring and the rains in the fall. The first-come, first-serve tests range in price from $27 to $49 a piece, or $117 for all three different packages.
