Well water testing service location changing in Perth as of Nov. 6

The Leeds Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit would like to advise residents who have been dropping off private well water samples for testing at “The Office” in Perth, that effective November 6, 2023 this location will no longer be available for picking up water sample bottles or dropping off filled sample bottles.  

To serve residents of Tay Valley, Drummond North Elmsley and Lanark Highlands, a new location in collaboration with Tay Valley Township has been set up.  Water bottles can be picked up and dropped off at the Tay Valley Township Office located at 217 Harper Road, Perth Ontario during business hours Monday through Thursday 8:30 AM to 4:00PM. 

The Health Unit would like to express their appreciation to the owners and staff of “The Office” for providing this service for so many years, and to Tay Valley Township for their assistance in ensuring this valuable service continues to be offered locally. 

The Health Unit encourages home owners on private wells to test their drinking water frequently. If you live in a rural area and you have a well on your property you can have your well water tested for free through the Health Unit. We provide several locations where you can pick up and drop of well water sample bottles. Public Health Inspectors are available to help your understand your drinking water test results and provide guidance on how to make your water safe.
