State makes some water testing kits available for free

If you're concerned about water quality after the floods, some free water testing kits are available from the state health department. According to the Rutland Herald,
Residents should contact their local office of the Vermont Department of Health <http://healthvermont.gov/local/district/district_office.aspx> for test kits and disinfection instructions. Water samples must be submitted to the Health Department laboratory according to instructions in the kit, and must be clearly marked “contaminated by flooding.”
...
Order a test kit for a fee by calling the Public Health Laboratory at 1-800-660-9997. A water test kit order form is also available on the Health Department website at: http://healthvermont.gov/enviro/ph_lab/water_test.aspx.

For those not eligible to get a kit from their State Government, take a look at the post-flood water testing information located in the Ground Water section of Water Testing Blog.

It has useful information from the USEPA as well as testing recommendations that will help ensure the safety of your family's drinking water.
