On Thursday October 10th from 3 to 6:30 PM private well owners can bring their water samples to the Rochester Area Foundation (RAF) located at 12 Elton Hills Drive NW in Rochester for free nitrate analysis.

If you want to know how much nitrate is in your drinking water come to this water testing clinic. The testing is free. If you come between 3 PM and 6:30 PM your samples will be analyzed within 15 minutes.
While you are waiting for your water tests, watch the analysis in progress and compare your drinking water to water from 3 different local wells. We will have free coffee, cookies and bars. You can visit with a geologist and hydrologist, who are also private well owners, about your drinking water concerns. Also, bring pictures of your well and any water treatment system you may have for your home drinking water, and any information you may have about your well
to help in the discussion. At the clinic, you can view the most recent maps and data about nitrates and wells in Olmsted and surrounding counties.
