Smoke in the Eagle River Valley

Smoke in the Eagle River Valley is coming in from fires to the west. 

If smoke is thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease, respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly.

Water Quality Testing

Eagle County Environmental Health does not have a laboratory facility to test drinking water. Private well owners are responsible for the quality and safety of their own drinking water. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) recommends testing your well water every year for total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, and pH levels. If you suspect other contaminants, test for these also based on your specific situation. These chemical tests for other contaminants can be expensive.
