Are you a private well owner in the Lake City area? We Are Water MN and the MDA are hosting a free nitrate testing clinic. Drop by at a time that works for you. Samples are analyzed on the spot ‑ the process usually takes less than five minutes ‑ and results are given directly to you.
This nitrate testing clinic will be held at Lake Pepin Legacy Alliance's Kernza Fest in Ohuta Park in Lake City, Minnesota.
How to bring a water sample to this event: Run your water first for 5-10 minutes, then put at least one cup of water in a clean, sealed, hard-sided container and keep the sample cold until you bring it to the clinic. Samples should be taken less than 24 hours before the event.
The nitrate testing equipment is provided by the MDA using funding from the Clean Water Land and Legacy Amendment.
The We Are Water MN exhibit is on display at the Lake City Library from April 28 - June 20, visit We Are Water MN - Lake Pepin for additional information.
