The Water Quality Testing Process

Sampling: We begin by collecting water samples from various points within your municipal water distribution system, including reservoirs, treatment plants, and distribution networks. Samples are collected in sterilized containers following strict protocols to prevent contamination.

Transport and Preservation: Collected samples are transported to our laboratory under proper preservation techniques to maintain their integrity and chain of custody.

Laboratory Analysis:

Physical and Chemical Analysis: We conduct inspections for color, clarity, and odor, and measure turbidity, temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, total dissolved solids, and various chemical constituents.

Microbiological Analysis: This involves culturing bacteria to detect their presence and using rapid tests like PCR to identify genetic material from microorganisms.

Disinfection Byproduct Analysis: We test for compounds formed by disinfectants reacting with organic matter to ensure they are within acceptable limits.

Data Interpretation and Reporting: Results are compared against drinking water standards set by the EPA or state agencies. If any parameters exceed acceptable limits, we provide guidance on corrective actions.

Continuous Monitoring and Public Transparency: Regular monitoring helps maintain water quality and safety. We assist municipalities in publishing Consumer Confidence Reports to inform residents about their water quality.
