NJCWST houses a New Jersey State certified water analysis laboratory (#07105). We offer analysis of water quality parameters in potable and recreational waters including phytoplankton identification and enumeration, cyanotoxins, fecal indicator bacteria, macroinvertebrate identification, water and sediment nutrients and microbial source tracking. Our laboratory has worked with federal, state and local government agencies, drinking water purveyors, consulting firms, conservation groups, homeowners and university scientists.
