Drinking Water Testing Clinics

The water testing covers the following parameters and potential contaminants: iron, manganese, sulfate, hardness, sodium, copper, nitrate, arsenic, fluoride, pH, total dissolved solids, coliform bacteria, e. coli bacteria, and lead. The cost for the sample analysis is $40, which is due at the kick-off meeting when participants receive their sample kit. Space is limited and pre-registration required. Reserve your space today; contact your local office of Virginia Cooperative Extension in the Northern Shenandoah Valley to pre-pay and pre-register.

Clinics will be offered in the counties of Clarke, Frederick, Page, Shenandoah, and Warren in November 2016. Please see reverse for dates, times, locations, and cost.
