Rock County is set to receive grants for well testing on properties affected by the 2008 floods.

For most, the one hundred year flood is a memory. But some property owners in Rock County could still be suffering the effects of contaminated well water. The State Department of Health Services is providing $40,800 for the well water test kits, testing samples from 400 wells, and on-site consultations for 50 owners of unsafe wells.

The Rock County Board is scheduled to accept the grant Thursday.
