Water Testing Program

The Adams County Conservation District (District) has partnered with Laboratory, Analytical & Biological Services (LABS), INC in New Oxford to provide water testing for our local community. 
    • Containers for water samples may be obtained from the District office.
    • Water samples may be taken to LABS Monday through Thursday 8:00 am - 4:30 pm and Friday 8:00 am - 3:00 pm. Friday sample cut-off is 2 pm for testing listed on the price sheet
    • Please call LABS with any questions and for holiday hours. 

Directions for Taking Samples
    • Take the sample from a faucet that is in regular use, not from a hose or a seldom-used pipe. 
    • The tap must be free of hose attachments and other water purification devices.
    • Refrigerate all samples until delivered.
