A high number of Rock county wells are testing unsafe for drinking water. The problems stem from the flood early this summer.


Rick Wietersen tells WCLO's Stan Milam Show the Rock County Health Department is having a busy summer testing well water. Of the almost 600 wells tested, more than 1/4 have tested unsafe for bacteria. So, Wietersen is urging well owners to have their water tested. He says the state is making it easier with free testing kits.


He also has encouraging new for well owners, says most problems can be corrected.
