• Water Testing Drop Off Information


Water samples are accepted at 51 Toronto Street S., lower level, Monday to Thursday between 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and Fridays before 9:00 a.m.  For further information regarding water samples, please click the title link above.

NOTE: Provincial Laboratories must receive water samples within 24 hours of the sampling date. All late submissions will not be tested.

The Health Department does not recommend submitting water samples on a Friday, the day before a statutory holiday, or long weekend.

Results are mailed to you usually within one week of the sample submission. If you wish to obtain your test results sooner, you may phone the number on the pink card (which is provided to you within the water test kit) and produce your PIN number and an automated attendant will reveal your result. If you need a hard copy of the result, you must drive to the Provincial Lab in Peterborough. The Provincial lab will not keep a record of your test results. If you require a history of your well water samples, it is up to you to keep such records.
