OSU Extension

offers well testing

Oregon State University Extension Service is offering free well water nitrate screenings for well owners on Sept. 7 in Brownsville.

A portion of the Southern Willamette Valley has been designated as a Groundwater Management Area by the Department of Environmental Quality due to elevated nitrate levels in well water. It is especially important for households with pregnant women or newborns to test for nitrate due to a rare type of blue-baby syndrome.

For a free nitrate screening, bring a half cup of untreated well water in a clean, water-tight container. The test takes 5-10 minutes.

Tests will be conducted from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Brownsville Farmers Market, at the corner of Main and Park, Brownsville.
