How do I address concerns about well water quality?

If you live within ½ mile of a new oil and gas operation, your water well can be sampled at no expense to you. Call the County at 720-874-6650 for more information about this. 

Most water well concerns (color, odor, or suspected contamination) are caused by lack of recent disinfection. For questions about water quality, contact Tri-County Health Department https://www.tchd.org/717/Water-Testing
