Description

What’s in YOUR water? Did you know that private water supplies like wells and springs are unregulated? It is the responsibility of the homeowner to regularly test water quality, maintain the water system, and address any problems.

Affordable, confidential water testing and education will be offered through Virginia Cooperative Extension offices in Chesterfield county. Pick up your kits on September 3 at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Library Meeting Room, and plan to drop off your samples on September 4 from 7-10 a.m. at the Central Library Meeting Room. Participation is voluntary and confidential. Water samples collected by participating homeowners will be analyzed for 14 parameters, including bacteria, metals, nitrate and hardness at a cost of $60. Results and water system care and maintenance information will be shared at an information meeting. All information is kept strictly confidential and results are reported only to the homeowner. 

Cost: $60 per sample kit.  Credit cards and checks accepted.

Make checks payable to: Treasurer, Virginia Tech

Registration Deadline: August 27, 2019

Refunds only available through August 27, 2019.  Any refund will incur a $5 processing fee.
