Should I have my water tested?

Statement by the Environmental Protection Agency:

Most U.S. ground water is safe for human use. However, ground water contamination has been found in all 50 states, so well owners have reason to be vigilant in protecting their water supplies. Well owners need to be aware of potential health problems. They need to test their water regularly and maintain their wells to safeguard their families' drinking water.

Statement by The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection:

MassDep recommends that prospective homebuyers test the water in a home with a private well before purchase.
