Water Sampling Station?

Do you have Drinking Water Sampling Stations in your town? And would you actually take a drink from one? Who knows what's in there...

There are two of 'em in my neck of the woods. I always check to see if they're open, apparently there's a little sink in there!

None of those around here. I would have thought they were for sample testing for contaminants, not ingestion. Shows you how much I know.

I have never heard of this. & I don't think I'd trust drinking out of this, no way!

I've seen it first time.

I have seen it in action (7th Ave in Brooklyn). It simply contains a tap and a little sink with a drain hole that leads back to the sidewalk. A Dept of Environmental Protection employee had a water testing kit. I asked him why he did not just use the sink in a nearby restaurant. He said he had to test the water, not privately maintained indoor pluming.

A sampling station sounds just bizarre! Is there a spigot on the other side!.. and if you're supposed to drink it wouldn't that just be called a drinking fountain? Great find!

ChickenUnderwear said...

Marie, they are totally locked up. It would be nice if we could get a drink sometimes

Dusty Lens said...

um, no, and no.

Guys...hate to tell you but this is not for you to sample water. I t is for the water company to sample the water for contaminants. This is something that is required by the goverment (actually a good thing). They are placed dependent upon the number of service connections to the water system. There are probably plenty more that you have not seen or there are others that have been placed in below ground cabinets.

Hey.

A bank is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Bank primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by bank vary over time and location. Banks are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, bank have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States banks are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=http://projectcontrol.v3host.nl]CLICK HERE[/url]
