Register to have your private well water tested this summer at our clinic in Chesapeake. After registering, you will attend your choice of a morning (July 27th) or an evening (July 28th) session at Central Library to pick up your water testing kit and hear more about how to sample your water. We will explain some of the things the test will reveal about your water. On July 29th you will drop off your water sample for us to transport to our laboratory at Virginia Tech where the analysis will be run. On August 27, you will pick up your test results at Central Library at a morning or evening session where we will explain the results of your water test. The cost is $49 per sample.
