Health District Seeks Homes With Wells for Study

Email Favicon Facebook Favicon LinkedIn Favicon

As part of a study of the extent of pesticide contamination of private wells, the Westport Weston Health District, in cooperation with the Connecticut Department of Public Health, is offering to collect and have tested 10 homes in Westport and 10 homes in Weston, free of charge.

Homes selected for the study should have been built before 1980 and may have undergone pesticide applications to control termites, according to an announcement on the Town of Westport website.

The Connecticut Department of Public Health is conducting similar sampling of private wells in other municipalities throughout Connecticut, an announcement said.

Test results will be provided to each participating homeowner with a letter explaining the meaning of the results with suggestions as to how to correct any problems identified.

Homeowners interested in this voluntary testing program should contact the Westport Weston Health District to obtain additional information and/or to complete an application form.

The Westport Weston Health District can be reached by calling (203)227.9571 or by sending a note to 180 Bayberry Lane, Westport, CT. 06880.
