CENTRAL ILLINOIS --  If you are one of the many  residents who rely on wells for water you should like this.
 
Next week is National Groundwater Awareness Week.
 
To celebrate, local county health departments will be offering free water testing.
 
The Tazewell County Health Department, Peoria County Health Department, Woodford County Health Department and Mason County Soil and Water Conservation are all participating.
 
All you have to do is pick up a sample bottle, fill it with water, and return it.
 
The free tests will only be done next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
