Water Testing

Water Testing

Our most important safety concern is keeping water free from organisms that cause disease, namely coliform bacteria, parasites and viruses. Coliform testing is required by law (Safe Drinking Water Act) and is routinely performed on all public drinking water systems.

Drinking water can also undergo USP testing and chemical assessments that can have detrimental health effects, including lead, copper, iron and radionuclides. Once water is known to be safe, it should be clear, odor-free and pleasant tasting.
