Water Testing Services

                                      Creating a water management program alone isn't enough to ensure that bacteria are not growing in your water system.  Routine monitoring can validate the effectiveness of your water management plan.  Buildings that test for Legionella are more likely to prevent Legionnaires' Disease.  The best way to prevent Legionnaires' Disease is to limit the exposure to Legionella bacteria.  The only way to do this is to determine whether Legionella bacteria are present through testing. 

                                      In regards to the latest updates to the EPA Lead and Copper Rules, children and communities are better protected from the risks of lead exposure.  Testing in schools and child care facilities will be required. Water systems throughout the United States are required to identify and make public the locations of lead service lines in their states.
