Services Provided:

  • Arranging lab testing of well water samples for bacteria contamination
  • Providing information on testing for chemical contamination.
  • Monitoring water sample results for public water supply systems.
  • Monitoring EPA Sanitary Surveys on public water supply systems.

Water testing on Public Water supplies such as the City of Cheyenne, Towns of Albin, Burns, Carpenter or communities such as Winchester Hills shall be done by the water supply system operator.
