City Drinking Water Source Information & Facts
The City of Chadron has 3 options for supplying its residents with clean drinking water:
  • Ground water
  • Surface water from Chadron Creek
  • Water originating from an infiltration gallery
The city is fortunate that the ground water is clean with low nitrates, but it still has the challenge of moving this water roughly 18 miles from their well field to town. Since their public supply wells are located outside city jurisdiction, city officials questioned what authority they had to protect their system and drinking water.

Private Well Testing
If you would like to test your private well, Nebraska Association of Resource Districts offers free water testing.
