Water Lab

Cumming Water Laboratory

Cumming operates a modern water laboratory where certified staff conduct water quality tests at various stages of the treatment process. The results from these laboratory tests enable our facility operators to make adjustments to the system to ensure that the facility achieves the highest quality of drinking water at all times.

Several laboratory tests are conducted by continuous monitoring equipment. The data from the equipment is used to automatically control chemical addition as the raw water quality changes over time. The City utilizes a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) computer system that monitors water quality and adjusts chemical feed systems as needed.
