Re: Gold Base Raid This Sunday There's also been reports that their well water is bad, and I think Maureen Bolstad said she refused to drink it after a time because it made her sick. So it's easy to take to get tested for coliform or whatever, IF you take a sample in a sterile bottle. Otherwise your sample will be tainted. It costs around $60 or so to get it tested. This assumes, of course, that the sprinklers will be on at one time or another during the protest.
