INDIANAPOLIS - More participants are needed for an Indiana Department of Environmental Management study on groundwater quality in Indiana.
IDEM says it still needs a few hundred more respondents to complete its survey of groundwater quality. Potential respondents are well owners, who should have received a survey form earlier in the year asking for permission to test their well.
Respondents will have their well water quality tested by IDEM free of charge.
"The more residents who participate, the more information will be available on water quality in Indiana," said IDEM's Dan Goldblatt. "By having their well sampled, the residents will learn exactly what is in their water. If a concern is found, IDEM will provide the resident with information on how they can reduce their exposure to potential harmful chemicals."
