Nitrate Testing Clinic
Free Drinking Water Testing for nitrates on Earth Day (April 20th)
Clean drinking water is a concern in many regions, including the Bonanza Valley Groundwater Protection Area of northern Kandiyohi and surrounding counties. The Kandiyohi Soil and Water Conservation District is excited to partner with Goat Ridge Brewing Company to provide free nitrate testing of your drinking water. On April 20th, stop by Goat Ridge Brewery with your tap water sample. Provide 1 cup of tap water (after the tap has run for a minute or more) in a clean plastic or glass container. SWCD staff will be “live testing” water samples with immediate results and providing drinking water health information and water testing advice from 3-7pm at the Brewery in New London. Samples can be dropped off in a cooler from 8am to 3pm, if you can’t make it from 3-7pm, please label your sample with your name and phone number. In addition to the April 20th event, SWCD staff will be testing for nitrates at the Earth Day Celebration at Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center from 8am-1pm on Saturday April 22nd.
