Reduced water test rates offered:

By

The Lake County Health Department will offer reduced well water testing rates in observance of National Ground Water Awareness Week. Water samples can be brought to the Lake County Central Permit Facility and Environmental Laboratory, 500 W. Winchester Road in Libertyville from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. between March 11 and 21. The normal $16 analysis fee for testing for bacteria and nitrates will be reduced to $10 for well owners. Lake County residents can pick up sterile test bottles to be filled and returned for analysis, or homeowners can request that a kit be mailed to them for an additional $2 charge for postage. Results are ready in about three working days. Staff is available to collect the sample for a $54 fee, which includes a well inspection and the lab analysis for bacteria and nitrates. Call (847) 377-8020, or email HealthEHS@lakecountyil.gov.
