The survey will be conducted by the St. Clair County Health Center with the assistance of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. This service encourages residents to take part in the survey by allowing the Health Center and State Health Department staff to collect official water samples. This is a free service and there will be no regulatory action. Random water sample collection in St. Clair County will take place the week of Oct. 16, 2017. The official water samples collected will be sent directly to the Missouri State Public Health Laboratory in Jefferson City for testing.
