The Pledge to Test Campaign is back for 2020.
In a survey of over 1,700 well owners, 67% believed their well water was safe without any evidence to support it. You can protect your health and your family's by getting your well water tested. The Private Well Class, in conjunction with 2020 National Groundwater Awareness Week, is proud to announce the 5th annual Pledge to Test Campaign.
2016's Pledge to Test winner, Liz H. from Illinois says, "It's awesome knowing I can drink from my kitchen faucet and not have to worry about contaminated water. Best thing I have ever done. I will test my water every year as recommended between spring and end of summer." You can read more about her experience on our blog.
Well owners are invited to pledge to submit a water sample for testing to a lab in their area by May 31, 2020. One Pledge to Test Campaign participant will be randomly selected to be reimbursed for the cost of testing the private well water at their residence, up to $200. The deadline to pledge is March 31, 2020.
