Water Analysis for Toxics

Since 1980, American Analytics has been a leader in water testing. We regularly test groundwater, wastewater, drinking water and influent/effluent samples. Common analyses include: pesticides, toxic organics, heavy metals, lead, chromium, pH, dissolved solids, dissolved gases, hydrocarbons, turbidity, and many other contaminants.
