Door County residents with private wells are invited to participate in a 
groundwater study this fall. Well owners are asked to RSVP online at 

     The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh has been offering discounted well water quality testing through this program since 2019. The goal of this program is to provide education about the importance of testing your well water as well as build a database of groundwater quality data in Door County.

The testing parameters included in the study are bacteria (Total coliforms/E. coli (quantification)) and Nitrate for a discounted cost of $30 for the first 300 registrants. Participants will also have the 
option to add Arsenic and Cumulative tests (pH, hardness, alkalinity and iron) for an additional $25.

     To participate, RSVP by filling out an online form using the following link with your well information by September 22nd.

How it works:
• RSVP using the link or QR code provided by Sept. 22nd 
• Receive sampling kit in mail

This program is a cooperative effort between the University of WI Oshkosh and Door County, with funding provided by Door County Public Health and Door County Soil & Water Conservation Department.
