If your well is located near a suspected or probable source of PFAS, you might consider testing. PFAS testing is currently not broadly recommended for all private well users, because of the complexity of proper sample collection, cost, and the limited number of labs approved for testing for PFAS. If you’d like to consider testing, the list of labs certified to test for PFAS in drinking water can be found on the Connecticut DPH’s Environmental Laboratory Certification Program’s website.
Connecticut DPH encourages private well owners to test their drinking water for general potability and other common naturally occurring contaminants. For general private well recommendations on what to test for, why and how often, please refer to the Connecticut DPH's website: TestYourWell.ct.gov.
