NEW HAMPSHIRE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL SERVICES RECOMMENDS THAT ALL PRIVATE WELLS BE TESTED

Private wells in New Hampshire are not regulated as water supplies, and are often not tested for health-related contaminants such as arsenic, a common contaminant found in bedrock wells in New Hampshire. The State of New Hampshire recommends that all private wells be tested for arsenic and a number of other naturally occurring health-related contaminants.
