The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit facilitates the bacteriological quality of well water for homes and businesses. It is important to do regular testing of any well water that is used for drinking.
As of August 6, the local drop-off location for the well water testing bottles will be changed to the North Grenville Municipal Office in Kemptville. A fridge is located on the second floor near the elevator at 285 County Road 44. Water bottle samples should be placed in the fridge for pick-up, and the results will be returned by mail to the property owner. Additional sampling bottles can be picked up at this location as well.
A launch event was held at the Municipal Centre in Kemptville to showcase the service change and highlight the partnership. The Health Unit and the Municipality are working in partnership to increase access for residents to drop off water bottle samples. The Municipal Office Hours of Operation for accepting samples are: Monday through Thursday, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm. For more information about the Municipal Office, call 613-258-9569.
