Does VA require a specific water quality level?
Water quality for an individual water supply must meet the requirements of the health authority having jurisdiction. If the local authority does not have specific requirements, the maximum contaminant levels established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will apply. Additionally, the well must provide for a continuing supply of safe and potable water for drinking and other household uses.
