Have Private Well Water Tested Now
Although not required in Nebraska by federal or state regulations, testing a private water supply is recommended. Generally, private water supplies should be tested annually for nitrate and bacterial contamination. Coliform bacteria are most likely to be found during periods of wet weather when the soil is warm. Therefore, tests should be conducted in the late spring or early summer during wet weather.
