To The Leader

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office is having another well water screening.  Residents can pick up a free water sampling test kit from the Orange County AgriLife Extension office, but must be able to return the sample to that office from 8-11 a.m. Feb. 6.  Instructions are included with the kits and only one sample kit will be provided per household.  Samples will be processed at Texas A&M University in College Station. The results will be confidential and will be either emailed or mailed to residents’ homes.  Samples will be screened for common contaminants, including E. coli bacteria, nitrates and salinity.  If you have any questions, call the Extension office at 409-882-7010.
