Q:

How often does Lewis County recommend I test my well water for my single family residence?


A:

Lewis County Public Health does not have jurisdiction over single family residential wells. Although, it is beneficial to test your well water at least once a year for bacteria, and every three years for nitrates. It is also advantageous to test your water after any construction and/or maintenance is performed on your well. Depending on your location, you may need to do arsenic testing as well (select "Critical Areas" and select "Arsenic Testing Required").
