Your local Extension Office and the Virginia Household Water Quality Program are offering discounted water testing for area residents at our 2018 Water Testing Clinic.
Here's how it works: Participants attend a short Kickoff Meeting on April 24 (at Wytheville Community College - Bland Bldg Rm 104), where they receive information about how to collect water samples and a sampling kit. Participants collect samples on the morning of April 25 and drop off at the Wythe County Extension Office (2110 N 4th St). Water is analyzed on the Virginia Tech campus for 14 parameters. Once analysis is complete, results are returned at a final meeting (May 31 at Wytheville Community College - Bland Bldg Rm 104). Water test results are explained, along with information about how to deal with any problems. If you are unable to attend the interpretation meeting, results will be mailed to you. All results are confidential.
All samples collected will be tested for: Iron, Manganese, Sulfate, Hardness, Sodium, Copper, Nitrate, Arsenic, Fluoride, pH, Total Dissolved Solids, Coliform bacteria, E. coli bacteria, and Lead.
Pre-register to reserve your testing kit(s): call the Wythe County Extension Office at 276-223-6040.
Cost: $55 per sample kit (This is over a $200.00 savings!). Checks and cash accepted. Make checks payable to Wythe VCE. Please bring payment when you pick up your kit at our meeting on April 24, 2018.
