Drinking water

  • Many Wisconsinites use private wells for their drinking water. Test regularly for bacteria, P-02132, nitrate, P-02128, and arsenic, P-45012 to ensure safe water at your center.
  • If you get your water from a public system, you can review your consumer confidence report to see where your water comes from and what is in it. If you do not find your system on this webpage, contact your local water utility.
