2024 Drinking Water Clinic Schedule COMING SOON! We offer programs in about 70 counties every year February-November. Since we operate through research labs on Virginia Tech's campus, analysis isn't possible during winter closing. Please find a list of certified private labs here. We recommend testing for bacteria, nitrate and lead at a minimum for private water supplies. Check back in January for our 2024 schedule. Thanks! wellwater@vt.edu
