Half of Maine’s population gets its drinking water from private wells and its felt very few wells are routinely tested. The cost to get your Maine well water tested varies and is the responsibility of the home-owner. By contrast, public water supplies are tested between monthly and every year, depending on the numbers of customers they serve. Determining how much it costs for a Maine well water test can be a barrier to some families.
