Because no single national database exists for collating of state data, we have been working to generate a national database of selected water quality constituents for use in regulatory compliance. We’re able to use this unique resource to help deliver quality information to our clients.
Not all chemical constituents are part of federal or state level programs (such as SDWA, NAWQA) — either for drinking water or wastewater effluent. Because of this, we’ve worked tirelessly to develop and implement monitoring programs targeted to the specific needs of our clients. Some past monitoring program aspects (such as at community water supply facilities) have focused on selection, inspection, instrumentation and sampling.
Endocrine disruptors in water and wastewater have become an increasingly important regulatory topic. We’ve been able to serve our clients by using our experience in analytical and bio-analytical techniques to monitor and detect endocrine disruptors in wastewater. Our staff also has served as laboratory managers and study directors in the validation of biological assays with the USEPA Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP).
From targeted monitoring to national modeling, Waterborne can do it all. We host and maintain iSTREEM for American Cleaning Institute, which models environmental concentrations in effluent, river reaches and at drinking water intakes for chemicals discharged via wastewater treatment plants. We also use our ecotoxicological experience to link these monitored or modeled concentrations to potential effects in the aquatic compartment.
