You can send your Door County water samples to UW-Oshkosh to make (sure) your water is safe. The university’s environmental research and innovation center has been offering the discounted well-testing program in Door County since 2019. By testing for water impurities like bacteria and nitrates, the program has been able to educate property owners about the importance of getting their well tested every year. Carmen Thiel from UW-Oshkosh says they have been able to take a lot away from the uniqueness of Door County’s water quality through the three years of testing.
A fee is required in order to participate in the testing program. You can learn more about it and register by clicking this link.
