Water Quality Lab: About Us

National Certification

Johnson County Wastewater's Water Quality Laboratory was the second lab in the State of Kansas to achieve national certification under the National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Conference (NELAC).

The Water Quality Laboratory employs sampling strategies, NELAC-accrediated equipment, and techniques perfected over 35 years of continuous operation to accurately determine the chemical properties or constituents of waste and surface waters. We have nine (9) staff members with a total of 159 years of experience in our field.

The Water Quality Laboratory provides analytical and consulting services for:

  • Johnson County Government
  • Private citizens
  • Other municipalities
  • Industries
  • Engineering firms
  • Environmental organizations
  • State and federal agencies

Water Quality Lab: Specialties

Since the mid-1980's, the core function of Johnson County Wastewater's Water Quality Lab has been the analysis of municipal and industrial wastewater, surface water, and landfill leachate. The lab is also experienced in the analysis of biosolids and the toxicity characteristic leachate procedure (TCLP) for hazardous and non-hazardous solid waste.

We provide certified drinking water analysis for determination of potability and can assist with "sourcing" surfacing water.

The lab features an Agilent 7500CD ICP/MS for trace metal analysis.

See our price list and certifications. We offer excellent pricing on high volume nutrient, demand, volatile fatty acid, and microbiological work.
