Reno, Nevada. March 9, 2017.
The Washoe County Health District is providing free water testing kits for Lemmon Valley residents to test private wells for the presence of bacteria. They will be available at tonight’s Lemmon Valley community meeting at North Valleys High School at 6 p.m.

Starting Friday, March 10, residents impacted by flooding can pick up the free kits at Ranchers Feed and Supply on 60 E. Surge Street, at the corner of Surge Street and Lemmon Drive and at the command post at Lemmon Valley Drive and Pompe Way.

Each kit has directions on how to submit the sample for testing. That includes mailing it to the State lab or dropping it off at 1660 N Virginia St, Reno, near the University of Nevada, Reno and Fleischmann Planetarium & Science Center. See Flood Health and Safety Information.

Residents only need to fill out the paperwork and submit the sample container to the lab. Washoe County Health District will notify residents of the results as they become available and will work with individual residents to treat or evaluate well conditions based on received results.
