The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and Clean Water Act (CWA) address microbial contamination of the nation’s waters. The CWA provides protection of surface water for drinking, recreational usage, and aquatic food source usage. The SDWA regulates contamination of finished drinking water and protection of water sources.
Water quality testing is performed in strict accordance with the U.S. EPA or California Water Board recommendations. Our laboratory offers the following analytical water tests:
- Indicator bacteria: total coliforms & E. coli
- Heterotrophic plate count (HPC)
Waterborne Pathogens are disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and protozoans transmitted to people through untreated or inadequately treated water. Consumption of contaminated water can cause severe, sometimes lethal medical conditions, particularly in those with compromised immunity.
Waterborne pathogens we test for include:
- Bacteria: E. coli O157:H7, Salmonella, Shigella, Campylobacter
- Listeria sp.
- Bacillus cereus
- Fecal coliforms
- Clostridium perfringens
