Where can I go to get my water tested?

Your public water supplier may provide water testing kits for residents who would like to test their water for lead. Call your municipal water system for more information. If they do not offer free testing, you can contact a certified lab to have your water tested. This test usually costs around $30. To find a certified lab, visit Michigan.gov/EGLELab and choose “Drinking Water Laboratory."
