The New Mexico Department of Health and the New Mexico Environment Department will be offering up to 200 free water tests for private wells serving homes not connected to a public water utility to residents of Tucumcari and surrounding communities in Quay County at the Mesalands Dinosaur Museum and Natural Sciences Lab on the Mesalands Community College campus.

HERE'S HOW TO COLLECT YOUR WATER SAMPLE:
• Fill a clean glass or plastic container without any strong odors, with at least a quart or a liter (i.e. half a gallon) of your well water.
• If the home has a whole house filtration system, collect the water at the well head prior to any filtration or softener systems if possible.
• Let the water run 2-3 minutes before collecting the sample.
• Fill the container with water as close to the time of testing as possible.
