For homes with private water instead of public, you will need to get your well tested and upload the results from the county health department to your application.
Well water test results (if applicable): Water from a source other than a municipal water supply (private well water) must be tested annually to ensure it is safe for drinking, cooking and washing.
- For a list of labs throughout Indiana that test well water and for additional information, visit www.in.gov/isdh/22450.htm.
- Contact an approved lab, and request a collection kit. Once you have collected your water, send the kit back into the lab for testing, and they will mail you the results. You will want to be sure this is one of the first things you do, because this process generally takes a significant amount of time.
- The results of the coliform bacteria testing must indicate your water is safe for drinking, cooking and washing.
