The State of Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) is working collaboratively with several Connecticut health departments to evaluate the presence of arsenic and uranium in residential groundwater wells. In 2013, DPH announced that well testing in various towns around Connecticut indicated the presence of arsenic and uranium. While the distribution of contaminated wells was sporadic, there were enough findings statewide to prompt DPH to recommend testing for both metals in all Connecticut towns.
You may be aware that some wells in Wilton have been found to be contaminated with arsenic and uranium. In order to further investigate the extent of the contamination, the Wilton Department of Health in cooperation with the Connecticut Department of Public Health (CT DPH) will be conducting tests for arsenic and uranium in thirty (30) randomly selected wells throughout Wilton. We are currently asking for volunteers to participate in this well survey.
