Water Testing

Water testing is offered to Lyon Township residents through the Oakland County Health Division (OCHD).

The fees are as follows:

  • Chemical Test - $10.00
  • Bacteriological Test - $12.00

This includes all drinking water, private swimming pools, and surface water samples tested at Oakland County Health Department labs.  Public swimming pools with an issued OCHD/state pool ID are not required to pay.

Water testing bottles are no longer  available at Lyon Township.  You must obtain bottles from OCHD offices located in either Pontiac or Southfield.

 Water samples can still be returned to Lyon Township for pickup by OCHD. 

Samples should be returned to the Township Hall before 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday mornings.  For proper results, the freshest sample possible must be provided.   

If you have any questions or issues, we ask that you call the Oakland County Healthy Division at 248-858-1312.  Lyon Township has no control over how the water testing is handled.

You may also contact an independent lab to conduct water testing.
