Well testing for Windham residents available at discount
Starting Monday, July 21, local property owners can stop by the Community Development Office and purchase discounted water test kits.
The laboratory, which also has a location in Maine, offers testing for contaminants frequently found in the New England region, including arsenic, radon and E. coli.
Much like radon, arsenic is colorless, odorless and tasteless when dissolved in water.
“Most people in Windham rely on a private well for their drinking water,” Scott said this week. “But most residents in New Hampshire have never had their wells tested.”
The water tests being sold at the town offices will be sold at a 20 percent discount, with town and lab officials transporting the samples to the laboratory.
Scott said all participating residents would receive results via email within two to three business days.
