Free Drinking Water Testing


Community members can have their residential drinking water tested for free, according to Assemblyman Anthony D’Urso, a member of the New York State Environmental Conservation Committee.

“Residents should take advantage of a $1.5-million state program to test the lead in drinking water,” said D’Urso. “The testing consists of two samples, a first-draw and a flush sample per house or apartment.”

To request a free water testing kit, call the New York State Health Department at 518-402-7650 or email The health department will send a sample kit, which must be returned in the postage-paid envelope within 30 days. Results will be analyzed and sent back within a month.
