City spokesman Stacy Weber said Toledo's drinking water will not be tested daily beginning Thursday.
"We've always been at weekly testing," she said. "When lake levels change we will go to three times a week testing. That's indicated at 2 parts per billion in the lake. We're not even required to test by the Ohio EPA right now."

I asked @city_of_toledo/@phh4Toledo PIO & Utilities Director to provide 0.4 ppb microcystin test documents. City was unable to show proof.
