Do you live in Fairfax County and have a well, spring or cistern? Learn about your water quality through the statewide Virginia Household Water Quality Program. The Fairfax County Office of Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE), within Fairfax County’s Department of Neighborhood & Community Services, is hosting the 2022 Well Water Testing Clinic in September 2022.
The clinic is open for registration through Sept. 2, 2022 at 4:30 p.m. Space is limited, so register early. Registrants will pick up water sample kits, which are $65 each, at the VCE Office in Fairfax at designated times on September 12 or 13, 2022. Participants will then collect water samples the morning of September 14 and drop off at the Extension Office. The samples are sent to Virginia Tech for analysis, and participants receive confidential results in about four weeks. A virtual meeting will be scheduled to help participants interpret the results.
