Water Contamination Testing
Whether it's for regulatory compliance as part of an environmental permit, for irrigation of agricultural land or you're simply curious about the risk of contamination in water at your property or site, our tailored water contamination testing for commercial and domestic clients can help. We can carry out water sampling as part of our assessment or we can send you a water testing kit for you to take samples yourself. After your water samples have been tested in our UKAS accredited laboratory, we can either provide laboratory results in a short report or provide more detailed analysis, including interpretations relevant to your specific site or project and, if deemed necessary or appropriate, a recommendation for further work or remediation.Get In Touch
Our Water Contamination Testing Services
Water Sample Collection - We can visit your site or property to carry out water sampling, for contamination testing in a UKAS and MCERTS accredited laboratory, or send you a water testing kit for you to take the samples yourself. We can also provide recommendations for appropriate sampling at your site to ensure that the sampling is appropriate or potentially affected waters.
Laboratory Water Contamination Testing - Our laboratory contamination testing of water samples can include a huge variety of contaminants, including dissolved heavy metals and hydrocarbons that are often found in water bodies near industrial areas, pesticides that can run off the surface of agricultural fields into nearby waters and pathogens that can enter waters from sewage spills. Simply tell us your situation and we can either build a suitable contaminant suite of water testing or carry out testing based on your specific request. Alternatively, if you're looking for a generic assessment of common waterborne contaminants, we can provide a generic suite of contaminants to allow assessment of water contamination levels.
Clear & Jargon Free Reporting - After your water samples have been tested, we can simply provide your tabulated results in a short report or, if you would like a more detailed analysis and interpretation of your results, we can assess them against a range of screening values to determine whether the water is appropriate for its intended use, whether this be for drinking water or for use in industry or agriculture.
Water Sampling & Contamination Testing Examples
We offer a quick and convenient water contamination testing service, fully tailored to your specific needs, however, we've highlighted some common projects we regularly help our clients with. Remember that we can tailor water contamination testing for your specific requirements.
General Investigation for Due Diligence - If you don't know what specific contaminants are potentially present at your site, or if you are simply curious about the condition of water on your land, we can carry out water contamination testing for a generic suite of contaminants (Priority Substances) that are known to pose a risk to water itself or to other receptors through transportation in water. Water bodies can be contaminated through surface runoff of contaminants or the leaching of contaminants through soil but there may also be previously unidentified historical contamination in the sediment of these water bodies that may be released into the soil when disturbed. It is often very difficult to determine the quality of water by observation alone so it may be desirable to carry out water sampling and contamination testing for peace of mind.
Regulatory Compliance - You may need to carry out sampling of water, used as part of an industrial process, that is to be discharged to a water course or to the sea in order to obtain an environmental permit. In this case, water samples will need to be collected and tested for the contaminants that are expected to be of concern in a UKAS accredited laboratory.
Agriculture - Water used for the irrigation of crops could be causing contamination if the water itself is contaminated. You may, therefore, wish to carry out water contamination testing for the water you use for agricultural purposes, to ensure the quality and safety of your crops. Water samples can be easily collected using our water testing kits or we can visit your site to collect the samples and provide a more in-depth interpretive report.
