Well water will be tested this weekend

Water testing is expected to get underway in the Acreage this weekend.

Preparations are underway to test the well water at several homes.

Workers with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection have been out again today getting homeowners to sign a consent form, giving them permission to come on their property to do the tests.

One homeowner says the DEP told him they plan to test the well water, taking samples directly from the well, and from the faucet inside the house.

It appears they will be taking the samples on Saturday.

The testing is part of the pediatric cancer cluster investigation.
