No. The number of required sampling sites is based on the total population served using the information found in our database. It may be appropriate to consider requesting a change in the sampling schedule to a time when the residency rate is highest. You should make an assessment of your ability to sample a sufficient number of sites during a projected sampling quarter. Prior to, or after the scheduled sampling period, you may request a change based on seasonal residence.
