VCE Loudoun Opens Registration for Reduced-Cost Water Testing

Water Testing

Are you interested in testing your well, cistern, or spring to find out what’s in your water? VCE Loudoun, in partnership with the Virginia Household Water Quality Program, provides an affordable way to test your water quality through their Fall & Spring Water Testing Events. 

Registration for October’s Water Testing Event opens today, Friday, September 9, 2022.

For $65, VCE Loudoun offers a water testing kit that tests for 14 water quality parameters, including pH, lead, and E. coli. A comparative analysis at a private lab is more than $300. 

For more information about this program, including how to register online, visit loudoun.gov/watertesting.

Please note that financial support is available for individuals/families who may need assistance covering this cost. Please email VCE Loudoun if you are interested in a need-based scholarship.
