FRENCH SETTLEMENT, LA (WAFB) -

Officials in French Settlement are handing out well water test kits to residents impacted by the flood. 

The tests are free thanks to LSU and Virginia Tech. Researchers are hoping to better understand the impact of the flood on private water wells. 

Residents can pick up a test kit at the St. Joseph's Catholic Church and the First Baptist Church. Both are on Highway 16 in French Settlement. 

Kits were handed out Thursday until 7 p.m. They will also be handed out Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. 

They are available on a first come, first serve basis.
