MSD maintains laboratory facilities at each of its regional water quality treatment centers. These are staffed as needed by treatment plant operators for process control analyses. Two of these laboratories are staffed will full time degreed Chemists and Laboratory Technicians-Derek R. Guthrie Water Quality Treatment Center (DRGWQTC) and Morris Forman Water Quality Treatment Center (MFWQTC). The DRGWQTC laboratory performs process control analyses for DRGWQTC and permit compliances analyses for our small treatment plants (STPs) as well as DRGWQTC. The Morris Forman laboratory provides permit compliance analyses for all the other regional plants as well as provides analytical services for the entire District.

On the average, the laboratory performs approximately 175,000 analyses each year.
