Lead Could Be A Possibility In Well Water

While Fond du Lac wrestles with replacing lead pipe water services the story is different for private well owners in the County. Diana Tscheschlok of the Fond du Lac County UW Extension Service says there is a possibility in older homes and with older wells that lead pipes were used to run water to the home. She says if that is a concern you can always test for metals in your well water. She says they do have links at their website to the State Hygiene Lab and UW Extension Lab in Stevens Point, both of which will do metals testing.
