Can private citizens submit samples to be analyzed for minerals, parasites, chemicals, etc.?
No. Private citizens can only submit samples to be test for total coliforms and E. coli , which are indicators of bacterial contamination in drinking water (Remember to enclose the $17.00 fee). For any other testing consult a private laboratory. If you have a public health concern (such as an illness), consult your county environmental specialist or the ADH division of engineering for assistance.
