NPDES compliance

Industrial field sampling is important for determining the levels of pollutants and other contaminants discharged into waste streams in the environment. The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program controls water pollution by industrial entities. Regulation is achieved by monitoring point sources that discharge pollutants into water. Industrial, municipal, and other facilities must obtain permits if discharges directly enter surface waters. Since enactment in 1972 as part of the Clean Water Act, the NPDES permit program has been responsible for vast improvements in community water quality.

ChemServe owns all of the equipment necessary to conduct sampling and analysis for industry monitoring and for specific permit requirements. The laboratory is accredited throughout New England for NPDES-related field sampling and analyses.
