I want my water tested. Where do I take it?

The City of Edina and the Minnesota Department of Health conduct all the water testing required by the Safe Drinking Water Act to maintain safe drinking water in our community. Results are printed annually in the summer edition of Public Works Pipeline. If you desire further testing, please call a private testing laboratory. Search for “water analysis” or “laboratories-analytical”. In order to test water, you need to know for what you want it tested. For more information call 952-826-0375.
