The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) is the federal law that protects public drinking water supplies throughout the nation. Under the SDWA, EPA sets standards for drinking water quality and with its partners implements various technical and financial programs to ensure drinking water safety.
Rogers & Callcott analyzes drinking water for municipalities, private citizens and state agencies. We’ve been awarded state contracts for the analysis of lead, copper, and disinfection by-products in drinking water. We partner with numerous drinking water facilities to perform their required analyses.
We offer routine drinking water analyses which include volatile organics, trihalomethanes, haloacetic acids, total organic carbon, metals (including lead and copper), inorganic parameters, and bacteria.
The Clean Water Act (CWA) establishes the basic structure for regulating discharges of pollutants into the waters of the United States and regulating quality standards for surface waters.
Under the CWA, EPA has implemented pollution control programs such as setting wastewater standards for industry. EPA has also developed national water quality criteria recommendations for pollutants in surface waters.
The CWA made it unlawful to discharge any pollutant from a point source into navigable waters unless a permit was obtained. EPA's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program controls discharges.
Rogers & Callcott offers wastewater sampling and analyses for routine compliance monitoring, treatment studies, and permit renewal including total toxic organics, priority pollutants, and OCPSF. We provide certified, pre-cleaned sample containers with required preservatives and chains of custody (coolers and packing materials can also be provided at the client’s request). Pre-printed container labels and chains of custody can be provided for clients that collect their samples. We offer on site composite sampling and sample pick up.
Rogers & Callcott has invested in a state-of-the-art LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System). Permit limits can be entered into the LIMS, allowing the project manager to notify you of a permit violation immediately so you can take corrective action. Client Connect, our online data portal, provides access to data, reports, and EDDs (Electronic Data Deliverables).
Proper waste management is an essential part of community's public and environmental health. The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), passed in 1976, created the framework for America’s hazardous and non-hazardous waste management programs. Materials regulated by RCRA are known as “solid wastes.” Only materials that meet the definition of solid waste under RCRA can be classified as hazardous wastes, which are subject to additional regulation.
Rogers & Callcott performs analyses on various solids and solids wastes, including:
- Biosolids (Sewage Sludge)
Sewage sludge, when properly treated by wastewater treatment facilities, is nutrient-rich organic material which can be used as fertilizer.
- Solid Waste
RCRA requires generators to determine if their waste is hazardous. Generators must document that the waste they produce is properly identified, managed, and treated prior to recycling or disposal.
- Soils / Sediments
Soil samples are normally analyzed for nutrients and metals. They are also analyzed when there is possible contamination from a leak or spill.
Our full-service testing laboratory offers sampling and analyses of soil, sediment, sludge, and solid samples. We perform testing for RCRA parameters, Full List TCLP, pH, flashpoint, metals, inorganics, and organics. We also offer fecal coliform testing on bio-solid samples based on the 40 CFR Part 503 regulations.
Please contact the laboratory if you are collecting samples to ensure that you have the proper container and preservative. Rogers & Callcott can provide either sample collection or sample pick-up. We can also ship sampling kits to you with sample containers and instructions.
Groundwater remediation is the process that is used to treat polluted groundwater by removing the pollutants or converting them into harmless compounds. Groundwater is water present below the ground surface that saturates the pore space in the subsurface. Globally, 25-40% of the world’s drinking water is drawn from boreholes and dug wells. Groundwater is also used by farmers to irrigate crops and by industries to produce everyday goods. Most groundwater is clean, but groundwater can become contaminated as a result of either human activities or natural conditions.
Rogers & Callcott offers a full slate of groundwater services, including well installation, sampling using both low-flow and fixed-volume purging, field data collection, and laboratory analyses. We maintain an extensive inventory of groundwater sampling equipment, and our groundwater field technicians receive rigorous training and sampling techniques in field parameter measurement. Their technical competence is verified through our Demonstration of Capability Program, and we back up our confidence it in their ability by covering field parameter data with our labratory's certification. Safety, of course, is of paramount importance. Our groundwater technicians must all pass initial 40-hour HAZWOPER training and an annual 8-hour refresher.
For clients who sample groundwater, the laboratory can provide preprinted chains of custody and bottles with preprinted labels containing all of your project information.
- Target Analyte List (TAL)
- Target Compound List (TLC)
- Volatile and semi-volatile organics
- Routine inorganics
- Low Level 1,4-Dioxane
Stormwater runoff occurs when precipitation from rain flows over the ground. Impervious surfaces like driveways, sidewalks, parking lots, and streets prevent stormwater from naturally soaking into the ground.
Stormwater can pick up debris, chemicals, dirt, bacteria, and other pollutants, which can enter a storm drain and flow directly to a lake, stream, river, or coastal water. All facilities must implement control measures to minimize pollutants in stormwater, and routinely sample their stormwater to measure the effectiveness of their mitigation efforts.
Prior to your sampling event, Rogers & Callcott will provide the sample containers with the required preservative, chains of custody, and shipping containers (if needed). You can arrange to have us pick up your samples or you can have one of your employees deliver them to our laboratory, where we have experienced staff ready to receive and analyze your stormwater samples.
Over $2 million has been invested in our modern lab facility and equipment to provide quality laboratory services to the environmental community.
