Thousands of residents in Southeast Minnesota rely on private wells for drinking water.  As a private well user, you are responsible for testing your water, protecting your water quality and maintaining your well system.  Regular monitoring of drinking water and understanding how the quality of water is changing allows us to identify, prevent, and address contamination before it reaches a level that can negatively impact health. To make sure your water is safe for you and your family, remember to TAP IN!

TAP IN stands for:

Test your water

Ask a professional

Protect your water quality

Inspect your well and septic system

Note important information

The TAP-IN Program has funding to provide free testing for nitrate, manganese and arsenic. Free test kits are available to be picked up at the Dodge County Environmental Services office located in the Government Services Building in Mantorville.  Currently, there is only a limited number of testing kits and they will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Call the office at (507) 635-6273 before stopping to make sure kits are still available.
