If you have a private well and have been affected by flooding, it is recommended that you do NOT use your water until is has been tested and proven safe. Flood waters can be contaminated and make people sick.

Our office has water tests available. During this flooding event (Spring 2019), water test kit handling fees are being waived by Missouri State Public Health Labratory.

Please call for more information or stop by during business hours to pick up a kit.
