I am not located in Arizona, but there are some people who work with Arizona Extension that may be able to help you with more specific information. See this publication for their contact information to see if they have a testing program: http://extension.arizona.edu/sites/extension.arizona.edu/files/pubs/az1486f.pdf

There is a list of certified labs in Arizona here: https://app.azdhs.gov/bfs/labs/elbis/drinkingwatertestinglabs/drinkingwatersearchcontentpage.aspx.

Best wishes.
