    Diana - Try your local cooperative extension or water department if they exist in your area. Otherwise, you will have to find a private lab that tests water for a fee. Do a search on Google under "water testing" and you will find many listings, including those that you can do by mail. If you use this water for drinking, I think it is worth paying to have it tested.
