All New, Resale and Rental homes that have a private well for drinking water must have their well water tested before they can be occupied, sold or rented. A laboratory certified by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) must sample and analyze the water in accordance with Ocean County Board of Health Ordinance 94-1.

This law requires specific testing of the well water for a variety of contaminants and chemical parameters (set forth in section 8A of the ordinance). Wells that require testing fall under 3 categories: (1) Resales, (2) Rentals, and (3) New Wells.

The Ocean County Ordinance 94-1 requires specific testing of the well water for a variety of contaminants and chemical parameters where a Certificate of Occupancy is required. Testing includes a standard PWTA Parameter test (Total Coliform Bacteria, pH, Iron, Manganese, Lead, Mercury, Nitrate, Volatile Organic Scan and Gross Alpha Analysis) plus Turbidity, Sodium, and Arsenic.

  • Sampling 7 days a week by appointment - days and evenings.
  • Results in 2 to 5 working days.
  • Reports hand delivered to the Ocean County Health Department.
  • Water Analysis Certification hand delivered to you.
