Stinky well

Asked June 5, 2017, 10:46 AM EDT

Recently purchased farm in Crittenden co. The water smells so bad. We only use it for watering the lawn. Can you tell me where to get this water tested? I am concerned this water could be bad. Thank You Linda Green

You should contact the local health department. They will come to the house and test the water, I do believe there is a cost associated with the test but I am unsure what that cost is. I also encourage you to read the publication "What You Need To Know About Testing Your Well Water" at:

I also encourage you to go by your local Cooperative Extension Office to discuss other ways that we can provide information or help you. Welcome to Crittenden County!
