The Oregon Real Estate Transaction law states:
“In any transaction for the sale or exchange of real estate that includes a well that supplies ground water for domestic purposes, the seller of the real estate shall, upon accepting an offer to purchase that real estate, have the well tested for arsenic, nitrates and total coliform bacteria. In conjunction with other home inspection services, clients may ask us to take a water sample and deliver it to Spring Street Analytical. As we are an impartial third party to the real estate transaction, there is no conflict of interest. The fee for a water sample collection in conjunction with other inspection services is $25.00; our fee to only collect the water sample is $50.00. Testing fees vary by requested services; contact Spring Street Analytical for options.
