Nelson County Extension Office Offers Water Testing Program
The Nelson County Extension Office will once again offer analysis of home well and spring box water supply in June. Residents wishing to have a professional testing of their home water supply are encouraged to contact the Nelson County Extension Office at 263-4035. The laboratory test allows you to better understand the water that you routinely consume. The test is offered at a reduced rate to Nelson County residents and provides a report on water acidity, hardness, impact of coliform bacteria, and the concentration of various metals such as lead and other elements. An informational meeting and sample packet pick-up will be held at RVCC on Monday, June 22nd, in the Rockfish Lounge, from 5:30—6:30pm. Additional locations around the county to be announced. Fresh water samples are collected on June 24th and shipped that day to the laboratory in Blacksburg. Based on the results you receive, you can better determine if the water requires corrective treatments or not. Please contact the Nelson County Extension Office prior to June 22nd to participate.
