What if I want to test my water?

If your water is not already being tested but you would like to test it, you are responsible for any cost. There are three laboratories located near our community that can run tests for 1,4-dioxane. Please note that only the MDEQ Drinking Water Laboratory provides copies of results to Washtenaw County Public Health. If you use any other laboratory and you would like your results to be kept on file with Washtenaw County, please contact Jennifer Conn with Washtenaw County Public Health.
