Participants are asked to bring in about eight ounces of water in a closed container, preferably glass, collected within 24 hours of the clinic. It is important to run the tap for 10 to 15 minutes on cold at full flow before collecting the sample. Residents with water treatment systems, such as reverse osmosis, are encouraged to bring in a sample pre and post treatment. Residents are also encouraged to bring in samples for friends, family, or neighbors who are not able to attend the event themselves.
