Borehole Water Analysis

At ACS Environmental Testing we are able to provide, in conjunction with our other group companies, a comprehensive sampling, monitoring and analysis service for borehole waters. Sampling and testing programmes include: Sampling for chemical and biological analysis - Surveys - 24hr call out for emergency incident sampling

Borehole Water Analysis

Sampling is carried out using disposable plastic bailers or electric pump for rapid sample collection. We can sample and analyse one off samples, or carry out regular sampling, testing and monitoring at intervals agreed with the customer and/or to their P.P.C. requirements.
