Water Testing

Postalgeek 8 October 2010 7

I am thinking getting some water from a small creek tested for quality, to see what contamination may be in it (as it’s possible that there may be pollutants leaching into it upstream), and to review its suitability for stock.

Any suggestions as to the best way to arrange a test?

to make a good stock, boil a chicken carcass for an hour with a chopped onion, a chopped carrot, a bay leaf and some seasoning, then strain and simmer for another twenty minutes, skimming off the fat…

Cheap option;

Drink it for a month or so, then when you get sick, have your doctor run some tests. Paid for by medicare, and should identify and contaminants.
