Physico-Chemical Water Analysis
- Total organic carbon (TOC) and dissolved organic carbon (DOC)
- Biological oxygen demand (BOD5)
- Chemical oxygen demand (COD)
- Ammoniacal nitrogen (NH4+)
- Total Kjeldahl nitrogen (TKN)
- Total phosphorous
- pH, conductivity, turbidity
- Nitrites and Nitrates
- Dissolved oxygen
- Several other parameters
- Total coliform count and atypical bacteria
- Fecal coliforms (E. coli)
Our laboratories can provide guidance for compliance with regulations, particularly:
- Municipal Wastewater Regulations
- Example: # Règlement R2008-47 sur l’assainissement des eaux de la Communauté Métropolitaine de Montréal (C.M.M) (Regulation R2008-47 on water sanitation by the Montreal Metropolitan Community) http://cmm.qc.ca/fileadmin/user_upload/reglements/2008-47_v2.pdf.
- Runoff water and groundwater in accordance with the Regulation for snow disposal sites.
- Analysis of water according to the specifications of the Industrial Waste Reduction Program (example: pulp and papers and the mining industry).
- Recommendations on wastewater treatment equipment as well as the preparation of plans and specifications required with work supervision.
