Virginia Cooperative Extension Announces its 2016 Drinking Water Clinic

This May, affordable water testing and information about water quality and well and spring care and maintenance will be offered for homeowners through the Virginia Cooperative Extension office in Albemarle County/Charlottesville City.

The goal of the Virginia Household Water Quality Program is to improve the water quality and health of Virginians with private water supplies, including wells, springs and cisterns. Drinking water clinics are held to provide people with private water systems access to affordable water testing, help interpreting their water test results, and information about possible treatment options.

How does it work?

Participants attend a short kickoff meeting on May 2nd, where they receive information about how to collect water samples and a sampling kit. Participants collect samples and drop them off on May 4th at the sample collection point.

Water is analyzed on the Virginia Tech campus for 14 parameters. Once analysis is complete, results are returned at a final meeting on June 13th where water test results are explained, along with information about how to deal with any problems. Results will be mailed to participants unable to attend the interpretation meeting. For more information about the 2016 Drinking Water Clinic, click here.
