An agreement for baseline water testing near an injection well site was signed Thursday by the Athens County Commissioners.

The $15,637 contract is with Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, which will do the water sampling from private water wells and send them to a lab for analysis. The idea behind baseline testing is to establish the current condition of groundwater in case contamination occurs in the future.
