Well water tests coming
Do you know whatís in your drinking water? Free well water tests will be offered to Belle Plaine residents in May. The project will be funded by the town and the Lumberjack Resource Conservation and Development Council, which awarded a grant of $2,780, which is 50 percent of the estimated cost of testing 100 wells.
Details of how to sign up for the tests will be coming later this spring. The testing is scheduled for the weekend of Memorial Day. Town officials will hand out bottles to collect well water samples to residents, then will take them to the Center for Watershed Science and Education at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
The Town Board has approved the program and budgeted the funds as a public service to town residents.
