The Ottawa Conservation District will screen drinking water well samples for nitrate and nitrate on July 12, 2019 from 10 am to 2 pm, at the Zeeland Township Office. The screening is sponsored by the Ottawa Conservation District and the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP). It is paid for by funds generated from Michigan pesticide and fertilizer registration and tonnage fees. There is no fee to participants for this service.
This service is for private drinking water wells only. Public water supplies are tested regularly. Please do not bring samples from public water supplies or non-drinking water sources. Only drinking water well samples will be tested. You do not have to use a special bottle for this screening. Any small clean jar will work—one ounce of water is enough.
