The Conservation Commission will hold a presentation to homeowners who had their well-water tested last spring and for those who would like to have their water tested this September. The presentation will be held Thursday, Sept. 22, at 6:30 p.m. at the Rindge Meeting House.

Speakers from NH DES will describe the aggregate townwide results from last spring and explain some appropriate responses to individual testing results. The Commission also hopes to have private water treatment representatives in attendance to answer questions.

Last spring, the Rindge Conservation Commission sponsored a well-water program for residents.

Approximately 60 homeowners collected and submitted water samples which were delivered to the NH Department of Environmental Services. Owners selected from various water tests that were available including such tests for arsenic, radon, coliform, E.coli, sodium, iron, manganese and chloride. The Commission provided $45 vouchers for tests last spring and will do so again for residents who will test for the first time.

The Conservation Commission will have basic water sample packages available at the presentation if a resident has an interest in testing or retesting.

The same $45 vouchers will be available for first time well tests (not for retests).

The Commission plans to be at Rindge Recreation Center Gazebo on Sunday Sept. 25, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect samples for delivery to Concord. Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting and learn more about their well water test results.
