State of Indiana Ground Water Monitoring Network Application

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is conducting a statewide ground water quality survey. We are currently seeking residential well owners to participate in this survey.

The water well sampling will be free of charge to residents who participate and copies of the analytical results will be provided. Your mailing address, and specific well location, will not be available in publications as part of this sampling effort. Any additional annual sampling of your well will occur at no expense to you.

If you are interested in participating in this program, please complete the enclosed application and return it in the provided prepaid envelope. The samples need to be collected from an outside spigot that is easily accessible to our samplers and is not connected to a softener or other filtration system. IDEM will call prior to visiting, but the resident does not need to be present at the time of sampling.

If you have questions, please call Kevin Spindler at (317) 234-3243 or
