Description

This program has been rescheduled.  Please see details below.  If you previously registered for this program, and have not cancelled, you are still registered.

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. Pick up your sample kit at the local Extension office with physical distancing measures. We will be offering a drive-through pick up on Saturday, August 29, 2020 from 9:00 am until noon at the Prince William County VCE Office parking lot located at 8033 Ashton Avenue, Manassas, VA 20109-8202. 

  2. Collect samples and drop them off locally on Wednesday, September 2, 2020, from 6:30 am until 10:00 am at the Prince William County VCE Office parking lot located at 8033 Ashton Avenue, Manassas, VA 20109-8202 (physical distancing measures will be in place and masks are required).

  3. Samples are analyzed at Virginia Tech.  You will receive your confidential results via email in October.  The results will include an explanation of what the results mean, and information about addressing any problems.  A recorded video presentation will be available to help you understand your results.

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