This package includes the following parameters:
- Bacteriological: E-coli, Total Coliform, and Background Growth.
- Total Metals: Aluminum, Antimony, Barium, Boron, Cadmium, Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Iron, Lead, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, Mercury, Potassium, Selenium, Sodium, Uranium, and Zinc.
- Arsenic: Even low amount of this can kill a human. You cannot smell, taste, or see arsenic in water. This is a common contaminant around BC.
- Chemical and Physical: Alkalinity, Ammonia, Chlorides, Color, Conductivity, Corrosivity (Calcium Carbonate saturation/ Langelier’s index), Cyanide, Fluoride, Hardness, Nitrate, Nitrite, Organic Nitrogen, pH, Phosphorous, Sulfate, Strontium, Temperature, Total Dissolved Solids, Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen, Total Organic Carbon, Turbidity, and UV Transmittance.
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.
