Where are the water supply samples taken from?

The North Kingstown Department of Water Supply collects samples on a weekly basis from sampling stations located throughout the water distribution system. The testing sites include all five of the system storage tanks and 13 other dedicated sampling stations. 

While it is not a requirement of the Total Coliform Rule (TCR), the Water Department also collects weekly samples from the ten (10) water supply wells.
