Households with private wells are advised to test for bacteria and nitrates on an annual basis to detect these invisible, odorless contaminants. Bacteria and nitrates can result from animal, insect or human waste or fertilizers reaching the well water and causing illness in humans.
The Barrington Area Council of Governments (BACOG), in conjunction with the Lake County Health Department laboratory, annually offers residents of Barrington Hills private well water testing that is fast, easy and inexpensive. Forthcoming details will be posted as they become available. Visit BACOG.org for additional information.
