The Virginia Household Water Quality Program aims to improve the water quality and health of Virginians with wells, springs and cisterns. We provide affordable water testing, help interpreting their water test results, and information about addressing problems.
How does it work?
Participants attend a short kickoff meeting, where they receive a sampling kit and information about how to collect water samples. Participants collect samples on a designated day and time and drop off at the sample collection point. Water is analyzed on the Virginia Tech campus for 14 water quality parameters. Once analysis is complete, results are returned at a final meeting, water test results are explained, along with information about how to deal with any problems. If you are unable to attend the interpretation meeting, results will be mailed to you.
Cost: $60 per sample kit.
Space is limited. Pre-registration and pre-payment required. (See link below.)
