Well Water Testing

Tuesday, 24 September 2013

The Edgartown Board of Health encourages everyone utilizing an on-site well for potable water supply to have their water tested. This is especially true if you live in the Price's Way, Shady Oak Lane, Huckleberry Hill Lane or Dubud Lane area where recent tests have identified a small number of wells with elevated nitrate levels.
