Virginia Cooperative Extension will be offering Well Water educational and testing clinics during the third week in July, in Gloucester, Middlesex, and Mathews. The first meeting will be the ‘kickoff meeting’, where we’ll discuss basic well water safety and maintenance, we’ll discuss the proper procedures to take water samples, and we’ll hand out the sample kits. The kickoff meetings take roughly an hour.
