How often is Troy's water tested?
Water Treatment Plant Operators do process control checks hourly (pH, free chlorine) as well as tests for Total Hardness and Total Alkalinity at 2-hr. intervals. Per Ohio EPA regulations, a minimum of 30 bacteriological samples are collected each month from various areas within the Troy distribution system, and the free chlorine residual at the plant effluent and in the distribution system is tested daily. Ohio EPA issues annual monitoring schedules, including quarterly and annual sampling requirements for various chemical, radiological and disinfection by-product constituents.
