DRINKING WATER TESTING SERVICES
AEM can evaluate your facility’s drinking water for the following contaminants:
- Other Metals
- Organic Chemicals
- Disinfection Byproducts
- Biological Pollutants
Clients that contact AEM are generally concerned with potential lead in drinking water. Drinking water can become contaminated with lead when it passes through lead pipes, new brass pipes and fittings, or pipes that are joined with lead solder. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) banned the use of plumbing fixtures, fittings, and solder that were not “lead free” after June 1986. However, this ban did not address lead-containing components already in place.
AEM tests drinking water outlets in educational institutions in accordance with USEPA’s 3Ts for Reducing Lead in Drinking Water in Schools (October 2006) technical guidance. In addition, AEM follows USEPA’s Quality System and Technical Procedures for collecting and managing all samples. Finally, AEM utilizes only laboratories that are certified by the National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Conference.
AEM has completed drinking water assessments for the following clients:
- U.S. Public Health Service - Federal Courthouses
- DeKalb County School District - over 150 facilities
- Atlanta Girls’ School
- Atlanta Speech School
- Private pre-schools and day cares
