Washington Island included in expanded well testing

The testing of private water wells in Door County will continue and include locations on Washington Island for the first time.  The county has worked with researchers from UW-Oshkosh for several years to track contaminants and bacteria in water wells and near beaches. Door County Supervisor Helen Bacon, who serves on the Health and Human Services Board, says the latest testing will offer property owners more convenience, especially Washington Island residents.


Residents will also be able to order testing kits online. Bacon says additional details on the well water testing program will be made available once some upgrades to the testing processes have been completed.
