Sampling Program


The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Oregon Department of Human Services (DHS) oversee Oregon's drinking water programs and require water providers to conduct routine monitoring of their water supplies and to report the test results annually.

Water Sampling Demonstration The City of Tigard, on a monthly basis, collects water samples to test for the presence of coliform bacteria. The presence of coliform bacteria is an indicator of a potential contamination. In addition, the City of Tigard tests for the level of disinfectants present in the water supply. Based upon our population and distribution system, the City of Tigard is required to collect fifty coliform bacteria samples each month. To find the latest analysis results of water quality testing conducted by the City of Tigard check out the Oregon DHS water system query page.

To ensure that tap water is safe to drink the EPA sets water quality standards and establishes methods and monitoring requirements for water utilities. The EPA sets maximum levels for water contaminants and requires utilities to give public notice whenever a violation occurs. Currently, there are more than 120 water quality standards for potential contaminants in drinking water supplies in Oregon. For the City of Tigard's latest water quality results please refer to city's Annual Water Quality Report. This is an Adobe Acrobat File
