Drinking Water Lab

The Health Department is currently testing drinking water for bacteria and nitrates. Nitrate samples can only be tested from private water supplies.

Standards for Water Availability Verification are applicable to building permit applications for new structures requiring a source of potable water. They are not applicable to additions, remodels, or structures with no plumbing. 

For emergency sampling, please call the lab for further instructions.

If you have any questions, please contact the Klickitat County Health Department.
