EPA does not regulate or provide standards for individual private wells. As a private well owner, you are responsible for the safety of your water. You should contact your local health department for recommended testing and standards.

At a minimum, well owners should have the following tests performed on an annual basis:

  • Nitrate
  • pH
  • Total Dissolved Solids
  • Total Coliform

Our Mission:
To provide testing services to ensure the health and safety of Utah’s environment and its citizens.
