Oregon Health Authority: FREE Well Water Testing for Fire Affected Properties
The Oregon Health Authority will provide free well water testing vouchers to private or "domestic" well users impacted by the 2020 Oregon wildfires. Get your application in February 1 - May 15, 2021. Applications are found at https://go.usa.gov/xAycC.
Vouchers cover the cost of testing for bacteria, nitrates, arsenic, and lead. Depending on well damage, some may also qualify to test for benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, and xylene as well. Sample collection costs are not covered by OHA.
All of the following criteria must be met:
• The property was impacted by the 2020 Oregon wildfires
• The well water is used for things like drinking, bathing cooking and washing dishes
• The well has 3 or fewer connections and is not part of a regulated water system
