Testing

Quality Testing
To assure quality water is being provided to city customers, sampling and testing is performed by plant operators around the clock. Water entering the plant, moving through the various processes, leaving the plant, and throughout the distribution system is sampled routinely. Continuous testing of critical parameters is done automatically. Plant personnel manually pull samples and perform analysis at set times. In addition, weekly, monthly, and other periodic sampling required by KDHE and EPA is collected and sent to outside, certified laboratories.

Consumer Confidence Report
A snapshot of the parameters tested and their results is available in the annual Consumer Confidence Report that is prepared and sent out to utility customers by the city.
