Stormwater Analyses

Many of our clients are required to capture and analyze storm water sample at various times throughout the year. BC Laboratories has many years of experience performing this type of work, as well as understanding the regulations which require it. We have helped many clients establish routine sampling schedules that meet the requirements of their specific permits. BC Laboratories regulary arranges for after hours or weekend drop off times for "first rain event" sampling so we can successfully meet the short holding time testing requirements.
