Santa Fe County , New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) and the New Mexico Department of Health (DOH) are hosting a free Domestic Well Water Testing event for residents in the Pojoaque Basin with private wells serving homes not connected to a public water utility.

The event will be held at the Pojoaque High School Gymnasium located at 1574 NM 502, Pojoaque, on Friday, July 7 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, July 8 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

These free well water tests will be offered on a first‐come, first‐served basis. There will be two types of tests: lab tests and in-field testing. The lab test will be done for the first 300 well samples from within the service area of the proposed Pojoaque Basin Regional Water System (PBRWS) and includes iron, nitrate, arsenic, manganese, fluoride, uranium, electrical conductivity and pH. The in-field test will be done onsite at the gymnasium for the first 200 wells not within the service area of the PBRWS and includes sulfate, nitrate, arsenic, fluoride, iron, electrical conductivity, and pH with the option for the above lab testing for a charge of $91.38 (Checks only. No cash accepted).
