2015 Drinking Water Clinic
If you have a private water source, such as a well, spring or cistern, YOU are responsible for the safety of your family's water quality and the maintenance of your supply system! The Virginia Household Water Quality Program provides practical information to homeowners about maintaining and protecting private water systems such as wells, spring and cisterns. People who rely on public water systems for drinking water have professionals routinely testing their water quality to ensure it meets federal drinking water standards, but private water system owners must take care of this monitoring themselves. Through this program, a drinking water clinic will be offered in Spotsylvania County this year, which provide affordable water testing, interpretation of test results and general information about maintenance of private water systems and dealing with water problems.
Participation in a drinking water clinic includes analysis for 14 chemical and bacteriological constituents. Since analysis occurs at our cost recovery lab, the analysis is $50. Comparable analysis at a private commercial lab would cost about $300.
