Description

Do you have a well or spring? 

What’s in your water?

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.

Our Schedule:

1. The Kick-Off Meeting on May 4th from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Rust Library Large conference room (380 Old Waterford Road, NW Leesburg, VA  20175).  Introduces water quality concerns in our area; kits will be provided

2. The Sample Drop Off on May 6th from 7:00 am – 10:00 am ONLY at the VCE Office 750 Miller Drive, SE Suite F-3 Leesburg, VA  20175.

3. The Results Interpretation Meeting on June 1st from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Rust Library Large conference room (380 Old Waterford Road, NW Leesburg, VA  20175).  This meeting will explain the report, including a discussion and answer questions on dealing with water problems.
