Should You Have Your Water Tested?

              Modern oil and gas drilling is a highly technical and closely monitored process with regulations in place to protect underground sources of drinking water during and after the drilling process.  The chance of ground water contamination is small but it is possible that groundwater quality can be impacted, especially near oil and gas well sites. Homeowners near such sites may want to consider drinking water testing for contaminants commonly associated with oil and gas drilling. The Monroe County Health Department can offer these testing services. A registered sanitarian on staff will collect the sample on site using EPA approved protocols. Water sample results are usually available within two weeks after testing. Please call the Monroe County Health Department at (740) 472-1677 extension 206 for more information such as prices and scheduling.
