Virginia Master Well Owner Network
What is the Virginia Master Well Owner Network (VAMWON)? The VAMWON consists of Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE) educator/agents and screened volunteers trained in the proper design, management, and maintenance of private water supply systems (springs, wells, and cisterns). VAMWON trained VCE educator/agents organize and conduct county-based drinking water clinics and serve as a local resource for clientele with household water quality concerns. Trained VAMWON volunteers reach out to private water system owners in a variety of ways, ranging from speaking to local community groups to informal discussions with friends and neighbors. The development of VAMWON enables trained educator/agents and volunteers to work together to inform Virginians dependent on private water systems about water testing, water treatment, and system maintenance.

If you rely on a well, spring or cistern for your water supply, you are responsible for the safety of your family's water! This means you should take steps toward maintaining and protecting your well and regularly test your water.
