A Contract Lab Can Help You Determine the Purity of Your Water

Water is used for a variety of applications, and must be regularly tested for contaminants.

Surface Water Testing

Surface Water and Groundwater Testing

Contract Laboratory regularly receives requests from companies, governments and organizations for surface water testing and groundwater testing.

Surface water is water found in rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, oceans, and even snow and ice. As opposed to groundwater which is found beneath the surface of the Earth.

In OUTSOURCE!’s recent article, “Water contamination across the U.S. signifies the importance of groundwater and surface water testing,” the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) found levels of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) across America’s tap waters.

PFAS, commonly referred to as “forever chemicals,” was reportedly found in at least 45% of the nation’s tap water, according to a recent study.

Surface and groundwater testing is important due to the number of contaminants that can leach into it through pesticides and fertilizers, sewage waste, gasoline and oil, pharmaceuticals, and other pollutants. This can cause unsafe build ups of harmful chemicals making the water unsafe for human consumption.

This news from USGS sparks the need for and importance of groundwater and surface water testing, which is vital to ensuring the safety of drinking water.

Water testing of surface and groundwater also ensures the quality of the water is safe for aquatic activities and consumption. In addition to ensuring its safety, water testing also tracks how well water cleanup plans are working and helps maintain the quality of the water.

Water Testing Requests

Recent projects that Contract Laboratory has received for surface water and ground water testing include:

  • Environmental analytical chemistry laboratory needed for surface water testing for antibiotics in surface water for samples from India. Please provide holding time and cost.
  • LONG-TERM TESTING Ontario Accredited Environmental Laboratory needed for groundwater testing: ethane analysis
  • Microbiology laboratory needed for microbiological testing of production facility including water testing and air testing of various areas around production line including plastic closures, preforms and conveyors. Microbiology testing to include mold/yeast, total bacterial, and coliform separately. Tap water in the production area will also be tested in the production area.
  • University researcher in Plant Protection needs agriculture laboratory for water testing of water samples used for agricultural irrigation.
  • Environmental Analytical chemistry laboratory needed for wastewater testing for Absorbable Organic Halogens, AOX in wastewater.
