Sample Stations

To ensure the quality of your drinking water, the Department of Water and Wastewater Resources has been installing water sample stations throughout the city of Daly City.

Above-Ground Stations

Most noticeable are the above ground stations. These resemble little green phone booths. They stand about 2' tall and are instrumental in aiding our staff in collecting water samples to be tested to insure safe drinking water for our customers. At present count, there are 32 sample "sites" in place.

Back Up Below-Ground Sample Stations

The back up sample station differs in style from its above ground brethren. These sample stations are installed below ground, in a sealed meter box. The boxes contain both the sample station and a remotely read water meter. Being that the box is sealed eliminates the possibility of dirt of other debris from filling up the box.
