We take water samples from rivers, lakes and ponds from which water chemistry and quality can be determined.

Sampling follows standard protocols to ensure each water sample is representative of the system and suitable for the types of analysis required. A range of parameters may also be measured in situ using research quality instruments (e.g. dissolved oxygen, pH, temperature, conductivity, total alkalinity, water clarity). For laboratory analysis, samples are transferred to suitable containers and refrigerated or frozen as appropriate for transport to the laboratory where they are analysed promptly.

We are able to conduct the full range of chemical analysis on waters of all kinds according to client wishes using expert, accredited laboratories as well as internal facilities.
