The Environmental Analysts Team uses their knowledge and experience to provide high quality environmental analyses while striving for improvement in ways to protect the environment through their assessment of data collected and analyzed. The Analysts work under rigorous NELAC accreditation standards to analyze groundwater, surface water, wastewater, soils and sludge for pollutants utilizing state-of-the-art instrumentation. Analyses includes; inorganic analytes, such as trace metals, minerals and nutrients (nitrogen and phosphate based). Organic analytes include herbicides, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, petroleum products and derivatives. Other environmental parameters analyze include bacteria, total suspended solids, turbidity, chlorophyll-a and various other environmental quality indices. The Environmental Monitoring Laboratory is accredited for over 200 parameters for non-potable water, solids and other chemical materials in the categories of General Chemistry, Metals, Extractable Organics, Volatile Organics and Microbiology.
