Organics In Water Test
What is the Organics in Water Test?
The “Organics in Water Test” is a suite of tests used to detect and measure the presence of organic compounds in water. These tests can monitor drinking water quality, assess the potential impact of pollutants on surface water and groundwater, and determine the effectiveness of treatment processes. We can test for TOC (Total organic carbon), COD (Chemical oxygen demand), BOD (Biochemical oxygen demand), VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), SVOCs (Semi-Volatile Organic Compounds), herbicides, pesticides, water treatment system by-products and many more with our state-of-the-art laboratories.

Why use the Organics in Water Test
There are several reasons why it may be important to perform an organics in water test:
- Compliance with regulations: Many countries have regulations that limit the amount of certain types of organic compounds that can be present in drinking water, and testing is required to ensure compliance.
- Environmental monitoring: Organics in water can come from various sources, including agricultural runoff, industrial discharges, and stormwater runoff. By testing for organics in water, it is possible to identify the sources of pollution and take steps to reduce or eliminate them.
- Drinking water safety: Organic compounds can adversely affect human health if consumed in large quantities. Testing for organics in drinking water can ensure it is safe to drink.
- Treatment plant monitoring: Organics in water can be removed or degraded by treatment processes, and testing is used to monitor the performance of these processes.
- Research and study: Organics in water tests may be used in scientific studies and research to understand the behaviour of certain compounds in water and the ecosystem.
Overall, testing for organics in water is an essential tool for ensuring the quality and safety of drinking water, protecting the environment, and complying with regulations.
