Why test your drinking water?

This month, the Town of Empire is participating in a well water sampling program, and it’s a great time to sample your well water too, especially if:

  • You have never tested.
  • It’s been more than a year since your last test.
  • You have young children or pregnant women frequently in the home.


  1. Decide what lab to use.
  2. Watch this video.
  3. Take the sample.
  4. Share with a friend or neighbor, especially a family with young children, so that they can have safe drinking water too.
