The first 90 Page County residents who sign up by calling the Virginia Cooperative Extension office in Stanley (778-5794) will get their drinking water tested for only $5!
This is a great deal to find out if your drinking water is safe. The test will cover 14 common contaminants including iron, manganese, sulfate, hardness, sodium,
copper, nitrate, arsenic, fluoride, pH, total dissolved solids, coliform
bacteria, E. coli bacteria, and lead.
The kick off meeting will be held Tuesday, June 11 (7-8:30 pm) at the Stanley Cooperative Extension offce. Participants will gather their water samples on Wednesday June 12 and bring them to the Extension office. A follow up meeting will be held August 12 (7-8:30 pm) to discuss the results. This is part of a program being offered by the Virginia Cooperative Extension in the northern Shenandoah Valley counties.
In Page County, this low-cost drinking water testing is co-sponsored by the Page County Water Quality Advisory Committee.
