Well Water Test Kits at Local Farmers Markets

By: Jordanne Feldman, URI Coastal Fellow

When was the last time you tested your well water? A year ago? More? If you are looking to get back on schedule or start testing for the first time, you are in luck! The URI Cooperative Extension Water Quality Team will be out and about across Rhode Island farmers markets with annual test kits for your convenience. In August we will be back at each market to collect your test kit and payment  and bring them to the State Health Lab in Providence.  To sign out a test kit and get details on pick up locations and dates, visit our informational display at the following farmers markets.

This program is great because we are adding the convenience of bringing the test kits to your town and then coming back to pick them up and drive them up to Providence. This eliminates the hassle of going to Providence twice in order to get your well water test results. We hope you take advantage of this opportunity and look forward to seeing you out at markets!
