Drinking water tests
One of the cornerstones of our daily lives is the consumption of sufficient quantity and quality of drinking water. Our laboratory provides professional assistance to individuals and companies, whether it is tap water or drilled-wells or dug-wells. In addition to chemical parameters, we are also accredited for a number of microbiological parameters with the help of our microbiology laboratory.
For our clients, we have compiled the types of packages that meet their requirements, which comply with legal and regulatory requirements.
- opening of the shop, reconstruction of the water system (test package)
- animal welfare support (test package)
- residential packages (test package)
In the case of mains water, beyond the delivery point (meter), the water supplier does not guarantee the quality of the drinking water, as it may be contaminated due to the poor quality or maintenance of the water pipes and fittings installed in the given building.
A well of its own has many benefits, but without testing we do not know exactly what the quality of the aquifer is. The well water used in the plants should be inspected at regular intervals and the results reported to the authority. In addition, a drinking water safety plan should be prepared.
Technological water, sewage, sewage sludge tests
The operation of factories is, without exception, governed by a number of laws and reporting obligations. Sewage, process water, and sewage sludge are produced at certain points in the production-line and operation and can be used and disposed of regularly beside regular analysis. Investigations are tightened for operators by several laws and regulations. In addition to inspections, our colleagues help you meet the authority's requirements and deadlines.
Companies subject to sewage self-monitoring have to provide the annual inspection dates according to the self-monitoring plan by 30 November of the year preceding the reporting year (ÖVB).
Groundwater and surface water studies
In order to protect groundwater, monitoring wells should be installed in the vicinity of each environmental use activity. Continuous sampling and analysis provide an opportunity to follow changes in groundwater streams.
Our clients include not only companies but also municipalities (monitoring wells at recultivated landfill sites) and livestock farms.
Not only the transport but also the disposal of waste is an increasing an ever-increasing burden. Landfilling of waste types is also required by law. The legislation contains the relevant parameters and the associated limit values.
In the case of non-hazardous waste, the following parameters must be checked annually by the transferor at the time of transfer to the landfill in accordance with Decree 20/2006. (IV. 5.) KvVM Decree No. 2.2.1-1. (landfill of subcategory B3):
- Toxic elements (As, Ba, Cd, Cr, Cu, Mo, Ni, Pb, Sb, Se, Zn; Hg)
- Anions (chloride, fluoride, sulfate)
- DOC: total dissolved carbon in the organic bond
- TDS: total solids dissolved from the waste
