Description

Virginia Cooperative Extension is providing this water quality clinic for residents in and around: Amherst County, Appomattox County, Bedford County, Campbell County, and the City of Lynchburg.

Do you have a well, spring, or cistern?

What’s in your water?

Learn about your water quality through affordable, confidential testing and become empowered to make decisions about system maintenance and water treatment!  The goal of the Virginia Household Water Quality Program is to improve the water quality and health of Virginians with private water supplies, including wells, springs and cisterns.

How it works:

  1. Pick up a sample kit from your local Extension office between August 31 and September 4 and get instructions to collect your household water sample.
  2. Collect a sample from your tap at home and complete a short questionnaire.
  3. Drop off sample at a designated location and time on September 9.
  4. About four (4) weeks later, come back to get your confidential test results, an explanation of what the numbers mean, and information on how to handle any problems that are present.
