International Water Quality Laboratory

LaboratoryThe 27,000-square-foot facility consolidated four laboratories that were located at the utility's plants throughout the city. The laboratory provides a better, safer work environment and established a national model for water quality laboratories.

To meet the demanding requirements of state and federal regulatory agencies, the laboratory has many cutting-edge features including an ultra-clean air system, a reverse osmosis water purification system, a dedicated data management system and a modern, open design.

Facility builds confidence

"We often talk about our leadership in water supply innovations, but just as essential – if not more so – is the work we do to guarantee the health and safety of our water supply," President and CEO John Balliew said. "When people tour this facility and see first-hand this modern laboratory, it builds tremendous confidence in what we do."

Consistent with state and federal regulatory requirements, EPWater tests hundreds of tap water samples a month to carefully monitor the quality of the drinking water. The high-tech facility depends on employees' knowledge and expertise to ensure that monitoring and sampling is done correctly.

The lab reviews more than 45,000 samples and performs more than 250,000 chemical and biological analyses each year.
