Residential Pricing

Private well owners need to be concerned about their drinking water. You may have staining in your sinks or an odd taste in your tap water. You may not be able to detect threatening contamination of your well from septic systems, underground fuel tanks or spills of hazardous material.

The Routine Well Analysis Package looks at the common contaminants from sources such as septic systems. For taste and odor problems additional testing is recommended.

Volatile Organic Compound Testing (VOC testing) is normally done only when sources such as fuel or hazardous materials are suspected. If you are in doubt as to what you should test for, please feel free to contact our professional staff..

The lab is open Monday through Friday from 8:00AM to 4:30PM. Come in, visit one of our pick-up sites, or call us at 508-375-6605. Pick up sites are located at the Board of Health offices in: Brewster, Eastham, Falmouth, Mashpee, and Wellfeet. Sampling bottles are available at any of the above pick-up sites or at the Barnstable County Water Quality Laboratory.
