The Jackson County Health Department is looking for Jackson County residents using private well water to participate in free water testing.

Director of the Division of Environmental Health and Emergency Preparedness Bart Hagston says the research project is gathering data on the presence of lead in private water wells.

The Jackson County Health Department is preparing to be open five days a week again.

Because of the prolonged Illinois budget stalemate, the facility closed on Fridays in December 2015.
