Water Quality

Laboratory Water Testing

We perform water potability testing for private well owners in El Paso County and for community water systems required to meet Colorado Primary Drinking Water Regulations.

To our valued water testing clients:

Effective January 2, 2016, some fees for water testing will be increasing. A complete list of updated fees is available here. Please note that any advance purchases for 2016 water testing will be assessed the 2016 fees. This fee change is the first since 2011, and is a result of increased direct and indirect costs. We will continue to provide competitive fees and excellent customer service to our clients. Please feel free to call us at (719) 578-3120 if you have any questions regarding water testing.
