Appalachian States Analytical’s residential drinking water program’s goal is to promote well water testing and to educate home-owners on its importance. Appalachian States Analytical is accredited by the Kentucky & West Virginia Departments of Environmental Protection for drinking water analysis.

You should test your water annually for coliform bacteria and every three years for pH and total dissolved solids. If you are concerned about potential pollutants or if you are experiencing aesthetic problems such as staining, taste, or odor, more extensive testing is warranted. Pollutants that enter wells can often be linked to activities on the land surface such as mining, agriculture, or industry.

If you have one of these activities within sight of your home, you may wish to select a drinking water test package based on pollutants most commonly found in association with each activity. Or, if you have concerns about the potential contamination of your well from a near-by septic system, the Agriculture/Septic test package is recommended.

Finally, if you are experiencing aesthetic problems, you may want to test for the components that are primarily responsible for these. Individual drinking water analyses are also available.
