BACOG Well Water Testing Event, Wednesday, October 5th!
Most Barrington area residents drink groundwater that is drawn from the shallow aquifer system. For private wells that serve just one or two households, there is no regulation that requires outside entities to test the well water. That means you are responsible for making sure your home’s water is safe to drink. BACOG partners with the Lake County Health Department laboratories to make private well water testing fast, easy and inexpensive for residents.
Test Kit Pick-Up at Village of North Barrington September 26th through September 30th, during regular office hours for $16 per kit, reduced fee. Only cash or checks are accepted. Please have exact change or make checks payable to “Lake County Health Department”.
Test Kit Drop-Off with BACOG, One Day Only: OCTOBER 5th, at The Garlands between 3:30 pm – 7:00 pm. The Garlands of Barrington, 1000 Garlands Lane, Barrington.
