State agencies to pay for Vienna residents’ water testing after oil spill.
If you live in Vienna Township, Ohio and believe your well water may be affected by the recent oil spill near Vienna and Mosquito Lake, make sure you contact the Ohio EPA about having them pay to have your well water tested. While they believe that the spill did not reach the aquifer, every well owner in the area should have their well water tested.
If the Ohio EPA turns down your request to pay for you to have your water tested, there is a cost-effective alternative. This test includes, among other things, dangerous contaminants that can affect your health in both near and long term.
This is a mail-order service from a professional laboratory located in New Jersey that uses EPA testing methods to test drinking water from wells, as well as from municipal water companies. The test, called the ‘Bang-for-the-Buck’ Essential Indicators Water Test, covers over 100 contaminants. The only contaminants that the well owner tests for are pathogenic bacteria—you can read ‘why’ here: Why test pathogenic bacteria yourself. All of the other contaminants are tested by lab professionals.
