Well water test kits are available

Well water test kits are available at the Sherburne County Planning and Zoning Office. The office is located at the Sherburne County Government Center, 13880 Business Center Dr., Elk River.

Kits cost $20 each. The water test kit will test for nitrates and coliform bacteria in well water.

The Minnesota Department of Health recommends that typically a well should be tested once a year for coliform bacteria, or whenever there are changes in the water’s taste, odor or appearance. For more information, call 763-765-4450.
