2015 Drinking Water Clinic

What value do you place on a clear, clean cold glass of water? More than 1.7 million Virginians, which includes many residents of Goochland and Powhatan, depend on wells, springs or cisterns for their household water supply. Private water sources, such as wells and springs, are not regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It is the homeowner’s responsibility to monitor the quality of their water supply.

Join us for our Drinking Water Clinic kick-off meeting on September 8 at 6pm in Goochland and Powhatan. Please register prior to the event and see the flyer for more details!
