The MN Department of Health (MDH) is the primary agency responsible for groundwater protection, and safe consumption of water from wells. Groundwater is a resource which few people consider in day to day interactions, yet in Itasca County many residents, communities, and businesses depend on well water. What happens on the landscape can have a long-lasting impact on the groundwater, and contamination can be permanent once it reaches an aquifer.
If you are interested in learning more about your well water, please contact RMB Environmental Labs for information on testing. The laboratory professionals at the RMB Lab on the Itasca Community College campus can help you identify what kind of samples might best answer your questions and concerns.
