Laboratory & Compliance

Lab tech testing a sample

As a NELAC-certified lab, we can test for a larger variety of contaminants rather then sending them to contract laboratories, thus saving the City money while producing highly accurate results.

This division is responsible for:

  • Sampling, testing of water, wastewater treatment facilities, environmental sampling, testing water distribution system, wastewater collection system, deep injection wells
  • Maintaining compliance with regulatory agency permits
  • Maintaining back flow preventers
  • Testing residential water meters
  • Systematic water main flushing
