Water tests could spur additional action

The path to better and safer water begins with testing your water. Earlier this week, over 200 residents picked up bottles from the Kewaunee County Land and Water Department for a second round of well testing paid for by a Wisconsin Coastal Management grant and donation by Peninsula Pride Farms. Although the first round of testing completed in July painted a brighter picture than what a 2016 study provided, Land and Water Conservation Department Director Davina Bonness said a number of new property owners learned that their well water was unsafe due to the high levels of a number of contaminants. Once you learn that your well water is unsafe, Lemens WaterCare owner Jim Simonar says it is a good time to have a conversation on how to fix it.

If you missed out on the opportunity from the county, water testing can be done year-round if you believe something is wrong with your well for a nominal fee.
