Wastewater Sampling Procedure

Follow the directions below to find out how to accurately sample your wastewater.

Wastewater Sampling Procedure

  1. Use a clean plastic container for submitting your sample. Bottles can be obtained from the laboratory.
  2. Rinse the container several times with water that is being sampled. Send at least one-half pint of water to be tested.
  3. Samples of lakes, streams, and ponds should be taken from below the surface.
  4. Label bottle clearly as “Wastewater.”
  5. If it is not possible to send the sample to the lab immediately after collection, refrigerate until it is sent.
  6. After you’ve mailed your sample, your results will be emailed once completed. Turnaround time varies by analysis and season, but most sample results will be sent within 1-3 days of the samples arriving at the lab.  You will receive an invoice with the results, payable by check, credit card or through our online portal.
