Ashtabula County Water Watch volunteers are currently accepting donations for water testing. We hope to organize fundraisers and solicit donations throughout the next few years. We want to test for radioactive materials in the springs around Ashtabula County, where many people get their drinking water (for example, the one on Rt 193, just downstream of all those toxic plants along Middle Rd. in Ashtabula).
The water tests that reveal radioactive elements and other toxins are much more expensive than regular water tests. They can be over $200 for each sample. Also, samples are collected very carefully and taken straight to the closest testing lab – which is all the way in Cuyahoga Falls – a trek from Ashtabula. Expenses to gather this important information add up quickly.
We are soliciting volunteers to help us fund raise for this cause! Please contact us to volunteer today!

If anyone wishes to test their own water, this lab is accredited to test drinking water for radiologicals by EPA Region V. Be sure to ask them ahead of time what the procedure is – they may need to take the sample themselves.
