Town-wide Drinking Water Sampling Programs

Below are resources for local officials and residents planning a well water sampling program for your municipality. Please contact the county UW-Extension office to let them know about your program in advance. UW-Extension and other county staff can offer promotional, logistical, and educational support to make your program a success.

Most of these materials were developed for programs done in partnership with UW-Extension and the Water and Environmental Analysis Lab at UW-Stevens Point. Programs can also be arranged in partnership with UW-Extension and local labs. Please contact UW-Extension to discuss the differences and the options.
