Does Your Residential Well Need Testing after Flooding or Another Contamination Event?  

Do you suspect that a drinking water well may have been contaminated by floodwaters or another recent contamination event?  The Alliance of Carolinians Together (ACT) Against Coal Ash has funding to help you test your well for several common types of contamination. We’ve arranged with Pace Analytical Laboratories to analyze well water samples for community groups or impacted individuals for the following types of contamination if you see indications:

  • Coal Ash (indications include: grey powder on surface or suspended in water or within 1 mile of coal ash site) àTest for coal ash contaminants
  • Hog Waste or Sewage (indications include:  dark discoloration on ground near well, or sewage-like odor in water) à test forbacteria, ammonia and nitrate
  • Fuels from underground or above ground storage tanks. (indications: sheen on surface of water, fuel smell) à test fordrinking water volatile organic chemicals.

To get your sample vials delivered and be able to collect your samples, please email  hope@cwfnc.org with your phone number, a good time range to contact you, and what kind of contamination you suspect. We’ll call you within 72 hours to discuss your testing needs.

The ACT Against Coal Ash Relief Fund can cover all expenses for:

  • sending vials to you
  • picking up your samples by courier if necessary,
  • and analyzing them in the lab

Pace Analytical will send the invoices to Clean Water for NC to pay on behalf of ACT, but the lab results will be sent to you, the person or group who collects the samples.  Remember, there’s NO COST TO THE PERSON TAKING SAMPLES, but you need to contact hope@cwfnc.org to start the process.
