This test is performed on new water sources to look for concentrations of hazardous organisms/substances, to identify trends in water quality, for source protection planning and water system design process. Additional testing for specific contaminants may be recommended based on the results of the original analysis, or in the case of potential nearby sources of contamination (industrial, agriculture or forestry operations). If additional testing was recommended by interior health, please list the extra items in the comments of your order and we will contact you to finalize your order.
