Water Testing and Kits in Le Sueur County

At this point in time, Le Sueur County does not offer Water Testing Kits on an as need basis.  Le Sueur County does host water testing clinics 1-2 times/year and at that time you may order your water testing kits.  If you want to have your water tested right away, you will need to contact an accredited lab within Minnesota that offers water testing services.  Please visit the Minnesota Department of Health Well Testing Webpage to learn more.

If you are interested in participating in a water testing clinic or have general questions about water testing, please contact Holly Bushman at hbushman@co.le-sueur.mn.us or 507-357-8540.
