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?

  1. Pick up your sample kit at the local Extension office with physical distancing measures. We will be offering pick up at our office located at 750 Miller Drive SE, Suite F3, Leesburg, VA 20175: Monday, 10/18/21, 8:30am - 5:30pm
  2. Collect samples and drop off at our office located at 750 Miller Drive SE, Suite F3, Leesburg, VA 20175 (drive-thru drop off): Wednesday, 10/20/21, 7:30am – 10:00am ONLY  
  3. Samples are analyzed at Virginia Tech.  Receive your confidential results, an explanation of what they mean, and information about addressing any problems via email about 6 weeks after the sample drop off. 

Testing includes:



Coliform bacteria





E. coli bacteria





Total Dissolved Solids



Cost: $60/sample kit (comparable analysis at a private commercial lab would cost more than $300).  

Please pre-register by October 15, 2021, as space is limited.
