A drinking water clinic for residents of Gloucester, Mathews and Middlesex counties will be held on Wednesday, July 12.
About 1.6 million people, or 22 percent of Virginians, rely on wells, springs or cisterns. The objective for the Virginia Household Water Quality Programs is to improve water quality and health in Virginians using private water supplies.
According to the Virginia Department of Health, well water should be tested every year for total coliform bacteria. Every three years, the pH level and total dissolved solids should be tested. Drinking water clinics are offered in the district through a partnership with Virginia Cooperative Extension.
The clinics provide affordable water testing, interpretation of test results and information about maintenance of private water systems and dealing with water problems.
