Is Your Well Water Safe? Time for a Check Up

Well Water Wise Week, May 7th through 11th, is coming up fast in Ham Lake, MN. All homeowners in Ham Lake get their water supply from a private well since there is no public water and sewer system in the city. Here is an easy way to find out whether your well is producing water that is safe for your family to drink.

It is recommended that all homeowners have the quality of their water tested annually. To make it an easy process, the City of Ham Lake is making test kits available at the city hall. Pick up your kit and fill up the sample. Then drop off the sample on M-TH between 8:00AM and 4:30PM (or Friday before noon) at the Environmental Services Unit in Room 360 of the Anoka County Government Center located at 2100 3rd Ave., Anoka. The kit is free but processing the water is $30. Each sample is tested and you will receive a report with the current levels of coliform bacteria, nitrogen and other contaminants.
