Every day of the year the water is monitored in different areas of the water system for chlorine residuals. Once a month a sample is taken in six different locations of the system and forwarded to a state licensed lab for analysis.
These sites change every month from a list of 20 different sites so that over the year the whole system is checked. Each of these sites is a dead end line to give us the worst case possibility.
