Free Water Testing Fremont, Norfolk, Verdigre
Mar 21 all-day

DHHS Partnering With EPA to Provide Free Water Testing March 21-24 for Private Well Owners Impacted by Flood

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services is partnering with the Environmental Protection Agency to open a mobile lab in three Nebraska communities that will offer free water testing for private well owners.

Recent flood conditions can pose threats to the quality of private water supplies. Flooded private water wells or wells suspected of being impacted by flooding may need to be tested to ensure that they are safe. Cloudiness or a change in taste or smell are signs of possible contamination. However, if there is any indication that the water supply has been breached by flood waters, even without noticeable changes in taste or smell, residents are encouraged to test their well water.

The mobile lab will be available in:

Fremont – March 21 and 22
March 21 – 2:30-6:30 p.m.
March 22 – 7:30-11:30 a.m.
Location – 2400 North Lincoln St.

March 22 – 2:30-6:30 p.m.
March 23 – 7:30-11:30 a.m.

Verdigre – March 23 and 24
March 23 – 2:30-6:30 p.m.
March 24 – 7:30-11:30 a.m.
Location – 301 South Main St.

Here’s how it works:
• Pick up a free testing kit at either the mobile lab location during the hours specified or from one of the local health departments below ahead of time
