By West Kentucky Star Staff
CAIRO - The Southern 7 Health Department will host two well water testing events for August.

The first testing event is on August 19th between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. at Union County Farm Bureau in Jonesboro. Water test kits will be available for $20. They will also provide information on disinfecting wells and safe drinking water.  

The second event is on the 26th at the Soil and Water Conservation Office in Alexander County.

There will be information available for how to disinfect a well in order to make the water safe to drink.

Southern 7 Program Coordinator Bobi Cavins said, "Especially with all of the rain that we've been having and flooding in those two counties, you will want to test your water for chloroform and E. coli."
