Province providing free well-water testing for New Brunswickers impacted by flooding

The province is providing free well-water testing for New Brunswickers who have been impacted by flooding. 

Government says water sampling kits will be available at Service New Brunswick Centres for owners of private wells beginning on May 17th. 

The province is reminding New Brunswickers that they must wait 10 days after water has receded from the well area before beginning the chlorination and sampling process. 

The province also says that all owners of private wells are advised that their water should normally be tested twice a year for bacterial analysis, in the spring and fall, to help ensure safety.
