How do I address concerns about well water quality?

If you live within ½ mile of a new oil and gas operation, your water well can be sampled at no expense to you. Call the County at 720-874-6650 for more information about this. 

Most water well concerns (color, odor, or suspected contamination) are caused by lack of recent disinfection. For questions about water quality, contact Arapahoe County Public Health.
