The Adams County Health Department is offering free bacteria and nitrate test kits during normal office hours.
However, you are responsible for the overnight shipping to the Illinois Department of Public Health's lab.
The City of Quincy is also offering test kits for $20 at City Hall.
Water samples can be dropped off to the City of Quincy.
