SERVICES » WASTEWATER
Trace Analytical Laboratories, Inc. works with a number of wastewater treatment plants to provide information for NPDES, IPP self monitoring, categorical discharge permit monitoring, baseline monitoring, and MAHL studies.
Trace has been performing the required low level mercury and copper analysis for a large city wastewater treatment plant in the state of Michigan for the past 10 years. Trace initially performed the sampling of low level mercury using EPA 1669, but later trained the plant personnel to take the samples themselves. Trace provides this client with a report which includes all of the required method QC and raw data from the analytical runs for their records. When the limit for copper was lowered below the capabilities of the plant’s on-site laboratory, Trace was able to achieve the new limits and run those samples for them as well.
Additionally, Trace provides analyses for local utility companies to help meet discharge permit requirements.
