Mesa County Public Health is celebrating Drinking Water Week by highlighting the work of our Regional Lab. Water is an important resource that plays a crucial role in daily life for everyone in our community. Our team works hard to ensure the water we drink is safe. 


Regional Lab Water Services

Homeowners with private wells can have their water tested to ensure its safety. Our water quality program provides bacterial testing for drinking water and irrigation water samples. In 2022, we processed 3,500 water samples. 

“We want to make sure everyone in our community has access to safe drinking water,” said Lab Supervisor Michelle Colon. Safe and clean water is a necessity. It is a key factor that contributes to the overall health and wellness of our residents.”

We offer water testing in our Regional Lab Monday through Thursday. The lab is certified through the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
