Through funds from the Groundwater Protection Act of 1987 and the Grants to Counties program, Henry County residents have access
to free water
- These tests are provided through Henry County Public Health and the University Hygienic Lab (UHL).
- A limited number of kits are available to private well owners in Henry County.
- The grant pays for both nitrate and coliform bacteria testing.
- Other Tests can be run as well for a minimal fee.
Additionally, if wells test high in nitrates but have safe bacteria levels, funds are available through UHL to further analyze the nature
of the contamination. Interested parties should stop by our offices to fill out an informational form and pick up a test kit. Please check for funds availability with the Henry County Environmental office.
