Well-Water Testing for VA and FHA Mortgages Inspections
The VA and some FHA mortgages currently require testing of well water in any property that has a well on premise. Closer Look Inspections will follow the detailed protocol for gathering the water samples and hand-deliver the samples to the certified EMSL laboratory following all chain-of-custody guidelines.
EMSL Labs has created an informational drinking water test protocol which, in the absence of any specific local or state analytical requirements, is based upon the FHA & VA minimum panel for drinking water contaminants. Accordingly, your drinking water samples will be analyzed for Total Coliform, E. coli, Lead, Nitrate, Nitrite, and Turbidity plus Iron, Manganese, and pH.
The corresponding informational water quality testing report will be issued within two business days of sample receipt and will compare your sample results to national standards that are defined within the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Primary and Secondary Drinking Water Regulations. Federal public health goals as well as state, county, municipal, and local health department regulations may recommend stricter standards for the same target contaminants. Therefore, these test results are intended to be used for informational purposes only and are not intended to be used for state or regulatory compliance
