Non-community Water Supply EH Services

Clay County has had a State Certified Water Lab for over 20 years. Of the various tests we can do, Total Coliforms, indicators of bacterial pollution, and Nitrate Nitrogen are the tests that have a health significance. It is important to check the water quality from your well every 2 to 3 years.

How to Get Your Supply Tested
