Surface Water

Our staff has conducted surface-water and sediment sampling for contaminant-assessment projects that resulted from releases at wastewater-treatment plants, agrichemical facilities, and industrial facilities. These sampling programs were required by various regulatory programs including NPDES permits, manufactured gas plant sites, PCB sites, nutrient releases, and various chlorinated-solvent release sites.

Typically, grab surface-water samples are collected across the cross section of the stream along with sediment samples. Our experience also includes sampling surface water in industrial wastewater-treatment lagoons, many of which were associated with textile plants.
