Water Testing

We partner with a state-certified local lab to offer a wide array of water testing options. From a basic tests to comprehensive tests that give you a 360-degree view of your water supply, we can help.

Water testing is the process of analyzing a water sample to determine its quality and ensure that it is safe for human consumption or other uses. Water testing is important because water can contain harmful contaminants, such as bacteria, viruses, chemicals, and heavy metals, that can cause illness or other health problems.

Water testing can be conducted for a variety of reasons, including compliance with regulations, routine monitoring of water quality, or in response to a specific concern or problem. Testing can be done on various types of water sources, such as tap water, well water, surface water, or groundwater.

Common parameters that are tested in water include:

  1. Microbiological contaminants, such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites, can cause illnesses such as diarrhea, cholera, and typhoid fever.
  2. Chemical contaminants, such as lead, arsenic, nitrate, and pesticides, can cause health problems such as cancer, developmental issues, and neurological damage.
  3. Physical parameters, such as pH, turbidity, and color, can affect the appearance, taste, and odor of water.
  4. Radiological contaminants, such as radon, can increase the risk of cancer.

Water testing is typically conducted by certified laboratories using specialized equipment and analytical techniques. The results of water testing are compared to established standards or guidelines to determine whether the water is safe for its intended use. If contaminants are found, additional testing or treatment may be required to address the problem.

Overall, water testing is an essential step in ensuring the safety and quality of our water supply. Regular testing can help identify potential risks and allow for prompt action to be taken to protect public health.
