Water Quality Analysis

Water Quality Sampling and Analysis

Drinking water quality varies from area to area, depending on the condition of the source, ground or surface water, from which it is drawn, and any treatment it may receive. Most water contains some impurities and contaminants. Contaminants can be naturally occurring, discharged from factories, farmlands, or from a neighbor’s yard. You should be aware of activities in the area of the home that may affect the water quality of the drinking water source, especially in areas served by private sewer (septic) systems.

If you are buying a home or are a homeowner and wish to assess the safety and quality of the existing water supply we recommend testing for coliform bacteria, nitrate, lead, iron, hardness, pH, sulfate, total dissolved solids (TDS). A water quality sampling and analysis will tell you which contaminants are in the drinking water, the levels at which they were found, and may indicate the actual or likely source of each contaminant. Testing annually thereafter is also recommended.

There are many contaminants that may be present in drinking water and pose a risk to human health. The U.S. EPA lists drinking water contaminants in the following categories: Microorganisms, Disinfectants, Disinfection Byproducts, Inorganic Chemicals, Organic Chemicals, and Radionuclides. You may choose to have additional testing performed beyond the minimum recommendations above.
