Unfortunately, some locations in southeastern New Hampshire experience water contamination, including high levels of arsenic. If you’re a local, we’re here to shed light on known contamination threats and your options for water testing in Rockingham County.

Water quality in the Rockingham County, NH area.

According to a 2021 Consumer Confidence Report published by Rockingham County Engineering and Maintenance Services, no contaminants were in violation of legal standards. Six total contaminants were detected but all were in compliance, including radioactive and inorganic compounds, and trace amounts of PFOAS chemicals. Keep in mind that these results were gathered from a few select wells.

A 2021 Environmental Fact Sheet published by the NH Department of Environmental Sciences explains there’s a 25% probability that a private well in New Hampshire contains naturally occurring arsenic above 5 micrograms per liter. It also emphasizes the importance of testing your water because of the fractured bedrock underlying New Hampshire, which can result in variations of water makeup between wells even in nearby locations.

Whether it’s arsenic or another element, a harmful bacteria or chemical, contaminants pose serious health risks such as increased risk of cancer, infertility, and compromised immunity. They frequently go undetected and health risks only increase with sustained exposure. Your best option to protect you and your family is to first have your water tested, whether you rely on a public system or a private well.

Public Water Testing

Most public water systems are closely monitored by local authorities who perform testing and treatment at designated supply sites. Despite this oversight, however, there is still a possibility that your home’s water contains pollutants unique to your location. As mentioned in the NHDES report, water quality varies even within close geographical areas. The Environmental Working Group – who performs extensive testing and offers in-depth education on water safety – advises contaminants be kept at lower levels than federal standards require. Even if your public water system is deemed legal, your home’s water supply may not be safe.

Well Water Testing

Unlike public water systems, private wells are not tested and treated by anyone except owners. Without regular testing or a high-quality water filtration system in place, you don’t know what’s in your water that could be harming you. Some common well water contaminants include arsenic, disinfection byproducts such as chloroform, and chemical pollutants like PFAS.

PFAS Water Testing

PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) are toxic chemical byproducts of manufactured items with water-repellent features such as nonstick pans and firefighting foam. Unfortunately, they’ve made their way into the environment from industrial emissions and discharge. If consumed in unsafe concentrations or for long periods of time, they can cause developmental issues for children, hormone disregulation, and thyroid disorders. Furthermore, they linger in your body and cannot be broken down in the environment. Because of these severe consequences, they’ve become a statewide concern, and everyone on a private well is strongly advised to get their water tested.
