Is your well water safe to drink? Many Maine wells have too much Arsenic, Radon and Uranium. The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a yearly test for Bacteria, Nitrates and Nitrites. The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention additionally recommends a test for Arsenic, Uranium, Radon, First Draw Lead and Fluoride every 3 to 5 years.

The State of Maine Health and Environmental Testing Lab (HETL) is now providing  secure online water and Radon Air testing kits  in addition to telephone inquiries.
