Learn how to test your well water.

Even if your water looks and tastes fine, it may still contain harmful chemicals such as arsenic.

Arsenic is naturally found in lots of Maine wells. It is especially harmful for little kids and babies.

The only way to know if your water is safe is to test it. The test takes about ten minutes to do. Watch a video on how to test your water. External site disclaimer
