What do I do if I think my well has been contaminated?

I want my well tested for bacteria. What do I do next? The Water Production Laboratory utilizes the Colilert brand of presence-absence tests. Each test requires 24-hours of incubation and the City charges $35.00 per test. If you are interested in having your well tested, please call the Water Production Laboratory at  (770) 781-2026 for more information.

I want my well tested for lead, copper, and other contaminants. What do I do next? The Water Production Laboratory does not perform these tests for the general public. If you are interested in having your well tested, please call the Water Production Laboratory at (770) 781-2026 for more information. We can recommend several local labs to perform the testing for you.
