How do I get my water tested?

Well water test kits are available at the Village Office Monday through Friday 8am-4pm.  You will receive a sterilized bottle and a form with instructions on how to take the water sample.  The sample and paperwork must be returned to the Lake County Environmental Laboratory 500 W. Winchester Road, Libertyville, IL 60048 847-377-8020.  Payment of $15-$20 is due to Lake County at the time you drop off the sample and paperwork.   Barrington Area Council of Governments (BACOG) usually holds a well water testing event once a year and they offer a reduced testing rate and a local drop off location.  These events are publicized on the Village website and Facebook page.
