Frequent Questions

If two plants draw from a single surface water intake, can the plants share one source water sample or must each plant collect its own sample?

Yes they may share a sample, but the state must approve one set of monitoring results to be used for both plants.  The system should indicate they plan to do this when preparing their sampling schedule.
