What Is Surface Water Testing?
Surface water testing analyses water samples from rivers, lakes, streams, and other surface water sources to determine the presence and concentration of various chemical, physical, and biological parameters. The goal of surface water testing is to understand the quality and health of the water in these sources and to identify any potential hazards to human health or the environment.
Why Perform Surface Water Testing?
Some reasons for performing surface water testing include the following:
- Monitoring water quality: Surface water testing helps to identify changes in the water quality that could indicate a decline in the health of aquatic ecosystems. This can include changes in water temperature, nutrient levels, and pollutants.
- Identifying sources of pollution: Surface water analysis can identify the presence of pollutants such as oil, pesticides, and industrial chemicals, which can help to identify the sources of pollution and inform decisions about how to manage and reduce pollution.
- Assessing the impact of human activities: Surface water testing can determine the impact of human activities on the water in rivers, lakes, and other surface water sources, such as the effects of land use, agricultural practices, and industrial activities on water quality.
- Supporting water management: Surface water testing can help to inform decisions about water treatment and management, such as decisions about drinking water quality, irrigation, and recreational activities.
- Compliance with regulations: Surface water testing is often required by law to ensure that the water in rivers, lakes, and other surface water sources meet established safety standards and regulations.
- Public Health: Surface water testing can help public health officials to assess the water quality in recreational areas, swimming pools and other public places to ensure that the water is safe for swimming and other activities.

Who Is Surface Water Testing Recommended For?
Surface water testing is recommended for a variety of organizations and individuals, including:
- Government Agencies: Government agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) use surface water analysis to monitor the health of the water in rivers, lakes, streams, and other surface water sources and to enforce regulations related to water quality.
- Environmental Groups: Environmental groups use surface water analysis to monitor the health of the water in rivers, lakes, streams, and other surface water sources and to identify sources of pollution.
- Water Treatment and Management Organizations: Water treatment and management organizations use surface water analysis to inform decisions about water treatment and management, such as decisions about drinking water quality, irrigation, and recreational activities.
- Researchers: Researchers use surface water analysis to study the water in rivers, lakes, streams, and other surface water sources and to understand the impacts of climate change and other human activities on these environments.
