New Dates for Well Water Wise Week

Due to the current situation, Well Water Wise week will be postponed this year to June 8-12th, 2020. 

Each year, the Anoka County Public Health and Environmental Services Department, in cooperation with many municipalities and County agencies, puts on the annual Well Water Wise week promotion to encourage residents to check the safety of their private well water. This year will be the 21st annual Well Water Wise week, which is usually held the first full week of May.

County residents may pick up a well water test kit at the participating locations listed below or at the Anoka County Government Center (2100 3rd Ave, Suite 600, Anoka, MN 55303).

Water samples can normally be submitted to Environmental Services for sanitary analysis (coliform bacteria and nitrate) every Monday from 8 am to 4:15 pm and Tuesday from 8 to 11:45 am (excluding holidays).

During Well Water Wise week, however, samples can be submitted Monday through Thursday 8 am to 4:15 pm and Friday 8 to 11:45 am. 

The well water testing kit includes details about water collection and submission. A laboratory fee of $30 will be charged for the sanitary analysis. Results will be mailed to residents approximately 2-3 weeks after sample submission.

If you would like to test your well for other components besides or in addition to the sanitary analysis (coliform bacteria and nitrate), please stop by Anoka County Environmental Services or call 763-324-4260.
