Submitting Samples

Please contact us before sampling so that we can ensure that you are collecting adequate sample volume, have appropriate equipment and sample containers, and that you are familiar with appropriate sampling methods for your constituents of interest.  We accept samples dropped off in person or through shipping providers, like UPS and Federal Express.  

We receive samples between the hours of 7:30 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday with the exception of major holidays and winter break (time between Christmas Eve and New Years Day).  Only with prior approval  may samples be received on Saturdays or holidays.

We can accept raw water samples or filtered samples, depending on your needs.  

Procedures and tips for sampling and shipping samples to the laboratory will be provided with your sampling materials.
