Description

As part of Virginia Tech's response to COVID-19, this program has been postponed.  We will update this site when plans for rescheduling this program have been finalized.  For anyone who is already registered, we will be in touch with you soon about rescheduling.  

Do you have a well or spring?

What’s in your water?

Public water supplies are tested daily for contaminants but most private water supplies, like wells, are rarely tested. Well owners are encouraged test their water at least annually for bacteria and nitrates. Regular well testing allows you detect and correct problems early.

How does it work?

The Prince William Drinking Water Clinic has 3 parts:

1. The Kick-Off Meeting on March 30th from 7-8:30 pm at PWC Board Chambers in the McCoart Building, 1 County Complex, Woodbridge, VA 22192 introduces water quality concerns in our area; kits will be provided.

2. The Sample Drop Off on April 1st from 6:30am-10am ONLY at the VCE Office, 8033 Ashton Ave., Manassas 20109.

3. The Results Interpretation Meeting on May 4th from 7-9 pm at PWC Board Chambers in the McCoart Building, 1 County Complex, Woodbridge, VA 22192 will explain the report, include a discussion and answer questions on dealing with water problems. (If you are unable to attend a meeting, please call us for info on how to pick up a test kit or your results)

The number of kits is limited. Pre-payment is the only way to guarantee you will get a kit.
