Well Water Testing
If you have had a drop in water pressure, leak or break, it's a good idea to have your well water tested. Environmental Health Water sample containers and instructions are available to anyone that wishes to have their well water tested for bacteria. Water samples must be collected the same day that you will submit them and in the containers that we provide. The cost of the test is $30 at the time of submission. We accept samples on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Please Contact Us for more information.
Limited Use Wells
This program deals with Limited Use Public Water Systems (public water systems which are not covered by the Safe Drinking Water Act), multi-family water systems, and private water systems. Water Sample containers are provided if you wish to have a bacteriological sample of your water analyzed. Containers are available from Environmental Health. Samples are $30 at the time of submission.

SUPER Act (State Underground Petroleum Environmental Response Act) Water well Surveillance manages several programs to identify and monitor areas in Florida where contaminated drinking water is suspected and may pose a threat to public health. Florida's Department of Environmental Protection and the Department of Health partner in the program.
Leaking petroleum storage tanks can contaminate the ground, and the groundwater. Environmental Health Specialists identify, tag, and sample potable wells in known or suspected areas of contamination.
