Mendham Township, New Jersey —
The Mendham Township Environmental Commission and Raritan Headwaters are sponsoring well water testing for residents.
To participate, residents must visit the Mendham Township Municipal Building, 2 W. Main St., Brookside on Saturday, October 15th between 9:00am and 12:00pm to purchase a test kit (payment must be in the form of a check or cash- credit cards cannot be accepted).
Each test kit comes with easy-to-follow instructions and all required containers. Residents will use the kits to collect water samples and then return the samples to the municipal building on Monday, October 17 from 8:30am – 10:00am
If your household water comes from a private well, it is not tested by any state or local authority. Well water tests can be expensive, but Mendham residents may have their drinking water tested for coliform bacteria and nitrates for $60. Additional testing options are available.
Raritan Headwaters will ensure that all the samples reach a state-certified laboratory later that day for testing. Residents will receive their confidential test results promptly, and if pollutants are detected the Association will provide information so that well owners can address the problems and make their water safe for consumption.
