Are you able to do bacteria and nitrate test on well water if I bring samples in

Linn County Oregon

Our office only provides nitrate screening only. If you need a bacteria test it must be done at a private lab for a small fee. There are a few in the area - most Linn County residents use Edge Analytical in Corvallis or Waterlab in Salem. You do need a special sampling bottle and procedures for the bacteria test from the lab.

For nitrate in our office a 1/2 cup of untreated water in any clean container will work. Please mark clearly with your contact information as they will have to shuttle to me at the Benton county office.
