Here’s an example of how community—university—Extension partnerships benefit everyone involved…

The Virginia Household Water Quality Program (VAHWQP) works to improve the health and safety of the 1.7 million Virginians who rely on private water systems (wells, springs, and cisterns) for their household water. In the U.S., public water supplies are regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act, which mandates regular testing and treatment for many contaminants. Homeowners who rely on private water supplies are completely responsible for routine testing of their water quality, maintaining their systems, and making decisions about water treatment.
