Do you test your water for impurities?

Yes, regularly. The Water Treatment Plant is certified in both Wet Chemistry and Microbiology. Our lab and our plant operators are certified by the Ohio EPA to conduct testing on our water.

The lab and operators must be surveyed and re-certified every 3 years to maintain our labs certification and to remain in compliance with state and federal regulations. Testing is conducted at the different processes of water treatment and also by taking samples at randomly selected customer locations. Some contaminant testing is performed by outside labs due to cost and the infrequency of testing.
