How can I get my water tested?
The cost of testing water can be quite expensive, depending upon the number of contaminants you are concerned about. Before you consider hiring a private laboratory to test your water, results for regulated constituents found in Pocatello's municipal drinking water are listed on the water quality table in the Annual Drinking Water Quality Report and annual results for all chemical analysis conducted in recent years, including any unregulated constituents, can be found under Chemical Analysis Reports.

For a list of state certified laboratories, contact the State of Idaho Department of Environmental Quality at 208-236-6160.
