    The Community Water Testing Lab, located at Thurston High School, offers free well water testing to the public. Tests are performed by students and results are mailed or emailed to customers within one week. The service is free to the public. We strive to produce reliable results. 

    Appointments can also be made by contacting the WELL lab at 541-988-5353. 

    Customers will drop their well samples off at Thurston High School on the day of their appointment.

    The THS office is located on the WEST (front) Side of the building, facing 58th street. Please park in visitor parking.​ 

    It should be noted that we are not a certified lab facility. Results compare customers' water to levels recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency for drinking water.  Individuals interested in this program must sign up to make an appointment.  

    The use of a sampling kit, which is provided by the program, must be used. 

    Free kit locations are in Springfield, Eugene, Leaburg, Lowell, Veneta, and Cottage Grove, and will be provided after making an appointment. 

    Please note that testing is conducted at Thurston High School.
