Summary

Specialty Analytical supports analysis of wastewater from industrial and municipal sources using methods listed in 40 CFR Part 136 for water samples subject to the Clean Water Act.

Wastewater is regulated through the use of discharge permits issued under the NPDES National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System. Discharges of water from industry and municipal sources are monitored for a variety of physical and chemical parameters.

Wastewater can contain a complex mixture of contaminants. Accurate analysis of these complicated samples requires a unique set of skills and experience in the separation and discrimination of analyte concentrations from background.

The staff at Specialty Analytical has the knowledge and experience to provide accurate and defensible analytical results even in difficult to analyze matrices.
