High levels of organic contaminants are not found in surface water unaffected by human activity. Elevated levels of such contaminants is a result of short or long range transport from contamination sources.
Surface water monitoring typically involves testing for the presence of organic contaminants. Our network of accredited laboratories offers a wide range of tests for presence of organic contaminants, including emerging contaminants such as PFAS
Levels of metals, and in particular heavy metals, is a crucial part when monitoring surface water quality.MORE INFORMATION
Undesirable organic compounds should typically not be found in surface water unless there are sources contributing to contamination.MORE INFORMATION
