Redwood Soil and Water Conservation District, in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, will offer a free nitrate water testing clinic on Friday, July 27, at Redwood County Fair from 2-7pm in the main exhibit building.

To participate in the testing, well owners are asked to bring at least one-half cup of water in a clean plastic container. To get a good sample, allow the tap to run 5-10 minutes before filling the container. Samples should be taken no more than 24 hours before the testing and must be kept refrigerated prior to testing. Mark the container with name, phone number and an identification number if more than one well is sampled.

Samples will be analyzed at the post – the process usually takes less than five minutes and results will be given directly to the well owner.
