PFAS - Non-Potable & Biosolids Testing

If you have received the new PFAS order from the State Water Board (SWRCB) based on water code sections 13267 and 13383 order for the determination of the presence of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances at publicly owned treatment works, order WQ 2020-0015-DWQ, FGL can help. The order requires POTWs (Publicly Owned Treatment Works) to test for PFAS in non-potable water sources (Influent, Effluent, Groundwater Monitoring, etc.) and Biosolids.

FGL Environmental laboratory has partnered with an accredited and experienced lab to support and provide this testing. We will provide the proper sterile containers for you to collect the samples or in some select instances we may be able to perform the sampling.
