The Virginia Household Water Quality Program works to provide affordable water testing and education for the 1.7 million Virginians who rely on wells, springs and cisterns for their household water. Drinking water clinics are offered in 25-30 counties annually through the local extension office, and offer testing for 14 parameters, including bacteria, nitrate, and lead. This video explains how drinking water clinic participants should collect water samples from their homes. For more information, please visit:
