Bacterial Water Testing

The Montgomery County Health Department provides bacterial water testing for swimming pools, beaches, and drinking water. Samples are analyzed for Coliform and E.coli bacteria. If your water supply is provided by a private well we recommend you have your water tested for bacteria annually. If you are wanting to have your water tested for something other than Coliform/E.Coli, there is list of certified chemistry labs in Indiana you can find here.
