Page Background


The Anne Arundel County Department of Health, Bureau of Environmental Health, typically begins its annual wet season site evaluations and percolation tests in early February and the tests run through the end of April.   Start and End Dates will vary from year to year and is set based on data from a network of monitoring wells to determine groundwater levels.  The highest water table is usually experienced during the months of February, March and April.

Wet season testing is arranged on a first-come, first-served basis.
