Water Well Testing

Did you know that you should be testing your well water at least once per year?

With the help of Horizon Labs, we are offering Well Bacteriological Testing for the first 100 homeowners (at each location) for a subsidized price of $25.00!

Here’s how you can take advantage of the offer:

  1. Pick up a sample bottle and instructions between July 1 and July 10, 2022 at one of the following locations:
    • RM of St. Clements Municipal Office (1043 Kittson Road, East Selkirk)
    • Grand Marais Community Central (36058 Provincial Trunk Hwy 12, Grand Marais)
  2. Follow instructions and collect your water sample after 2:00 pm on Sunday, July 10. Note: Be sure to keep it refrigerated!
  3. Drop your payment ($25.00 via cash or cheque made out to the RM of St. Clements) and water sample off at either:
    • RM of St. Clements Municipal Office on July 11 between 8:30 am and 11:00 am
    • Grand Marais Community Central on either:
      • July 10 between 2:00 pm and 6:00 pm
      • July 11 between 8:00 am and 10:00 am

We will then take your sample to Horizon Labs for you on July 11 after 11:00 am, so you can save your gas money!

The RM of St. Clements regular office hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
