The Tewksbury Township Environmental Commission will hold same-day, drive-up water testing for residents who want to check the health of their household water.  Test kits will be handed to you in your car from 8:00 am to 10:00 am on two consecutive Thursdays – October 22 and October 29.  After you collect your samples and complete the requisite paperwork, you will return the tests by 11 am*, and a volunteer will take the water samples from your driver-side window. 

Residents need to request the test kit ahead of time so that it is ready for pick-up upon arrival.

To order, send an email to welltesting@raritanheadwaters.org. In the subject line of your email please write “TEWKSBURY WELL TESTING”. Include the following information in your email:

  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Which samples you wish to purchase (Please see “What Should I Test My Well Water For?” for a complete listing of the available tests and the associated prices). Please call Mara Tippett, RHA Well Test Manager, at (908) 234-1852 ext. 401 if you have any questions on what to sample for.

Payment for testing may be made by check upon return of your water samples. 

*If you’re unable to participate on the scheduled well testing dates or cannot return the samples the same morning that you pick up your test kit, Raritan Headwaters can accommodate you at their Bedminster office. Contact the RHA Well Testing office at 908-234-1852 ext. 401 for details.
