INORGANIC DRINKING WATER ANALYSIS

Colorado Analytical Laboratory maintains certification by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) to analyze drinking water for inorganic contaminates (metals including copper & lead), cyanide, fluoride, nitrate & nitrite, and coliform bacteria.  All test methods have been approved by CDPHE.  Our state certification requires us to successfully analyze blind performance evaluation samples and submit to routine on-site inspections.  A strict quality control plan must be maintained and adhered to in order to retain certification.  Sample results can be forwarded to CDPHE upon request.
