Well Water Clinic
The goal of the Virginia Household Water Quality Program is to improve the water quality and health of Virginians with private water supplies, such as wells, springs, and cisterns.
Participants attend a short, evening kickoff meeting, where they receive information about how to collect water samples and a sampling kit. The samples will be dropped off two days later at a pre-determined location and time. An evening follow up interpretation meeting will be held four weeks later. At this meeting, water test results are explained, and information provided about possible treatment options participants may consider.
Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please fill out the registration form below and send it to our office to reserve your spot.
