Environmental safety and sustainability are at the forefront of most state and local government priorities. Environmental laboratories combine technology and expertise to deliver analytical data on biological, ecological, and physical sciences, as well as data on a range of diverse engineering fields. The environmental testing services performed at an environmental laboratory may include the analysis of water, soil & sediment, air, fish, hazardous waste, contaminants, and other kinds of environmental samples. These tests require qualified labs who can provide analytical protocols, environmental sampling and analysis. Environmental Laboratories ensure that testing capabilities are able to support public health and the environmental protection objectives of each state.
