Cinnaminson, NJ, September 25, 2017
EMSL Analytical, Inc. is pleased to announce that its corporate headquarters laboratory located in Cinnaminson, New Jersey is now certified by the State of Massachusetts’ Department of Environmental Protection for testing lead in drinking water by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) method 200.8 per the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA).
According to the Drinking Water Research Foundation (DWRF), the most common way that lead gets into water is through the corrosion of pipes and from fixtures with lead solder. Lead can be introduced into water when the water sits too long in leaded pipes, which can then unknowingly be consumed. Since lead in drinking water cannot be detected through scent, sight or taste, the only way to confirm its presence is through proper analysis.
