Hello-
Thanks for your question about testing your well. Many companies across Oregon will test wells for standard issues, such as fecal coliforms, nitrates and arsenic. I recommend that you use a lab that has been accredited by the State. A list of these labs can be found here:

If you have trouble loading the link above, try searching for the terms "ORELAP and labs"

Also, several resources can be found at this website:
