Water Well Testing

The City recommends, but does not require, well water testing at least once per year for bacteria and nitrates.

Surrounding land uses and past property use can offer clues regarding what to test for besides bacteria and nitrates. The Sedgwick County Extension Service, located at 7001 W. 21st St. North, offers helpful brochures for this topic.

For potential buyers of property with an existing water well, the Environmental Health division offers inspection services and reporting.

To request a water well test by the City, select: Request Water Well Test.
