Well Owners & Water Testing


You must test your well when required by the NJ PWTA for certain required parameters. If you own a property with a private well, it is also recommended to test your private well drinking water at the recommended intervals below: 

  • Every year (at least): Total coliform, nitrates, and pH 
  • Every five years: Lead, VOCs, arsenic, iron, and manganese 
  • At least once: Mercury, gross alpha, and uranium


As of December 1, 2021 PFOA, PFOS, and PFNA is a testing requirement under the New Jersey Private Well Testing Act.

Labs certified to test for PFAS can be found on the NJDEP Data Miner.
