Drinking Water Testing

Drinking Water Bacteriological Testing

The City's Wastewater Treatment Plant laboratory is a State of Wisconsin certified lab. Citizens with private wells can bring a sample of their drinking water to our lab for bacteriological analysis. Testing is performed for a nominal fee. Samples are accepted Monday through Wednesday, 6 a.m. through 2 p.m. Please feel free to contact 539-3646 or stop in at 2100 S Pine Street for more information or to obtain a testing kit.

The laboratory facilities at the treatment plant are certified by the Department of Natural Resources to provide full support for wastewater treatment processes. The staff conducts over 75 daily tests and a full range of wet-chemistry analyses on samples from the various stages of wastewater treatment.

In addition, the laboratory monitors compliance parameters for water quality standards and the discharge permit limits set by the Department of Natural Resources to assure adequate treatment of wastewater prior to discharge into the Fox River.
