Well Water Testing

Private well water testing is available through the Madison County Health Department. Citizens of the county are offered Bacteria testing (coliform and E. coli) and Mineral Analysis testing. The mineral analysis includes: pH, Nitrate, Chloride, Sulfate, Fluoride, Iron, Manganese, Lead, Copper, Zinc and Aluminum.

Citizens of Madison County can do their own Bacterial water sample. The Missouri Department of Health State Public Health Laboratory supplies sterile 100 ml bottles and forms for the public to use. These bottles can be obtained at the Madison County Health Department front desk. The Laboratory will bill you $10.00 per sample after they analyze your water and provide your result. Water cannot be analyzed from any other container except the one provided by the lab.

Our Vision

Madison County is a historical community of people who strive to live, work and play in a safe, healthy, environment.
