Testing Your Well Water for Bacteria

Coliform bacteria are found in the environment and in the feces of humans and animals. Most coliform bacteria do not cause illness, but they can indicate that other disease-causing organisms are present in the water. Waterborne illness from these other organisms can cause nausea, vomiting, fever and diarrhea.

See our Drinking Water Testing page for additional water tests available.
