  Below are listed a few suggested "package" testing possibilities for home owners performing regular safety examinations of their private water supply, and also those selling or buying residential real estate.  REMEMBER to call for differing combinations of analyses or multiple samples etc.  Prices, as well as selections, are made to order.

For Microbiological Analyses
The minimum sample size for most bacterial samples is 100 ml (4 ounces), collected in a sterile container.  In most cases a neutralizing compound should be present in the container for unsuspected residual chlorine.  Samples MUST be stored at 1 to 6 degrees Centigrade during holding and transport.  The holding time should be as short as possible, and no longer than 24 hours prior to analysis for drinking water and no more than 6 hours for waste waters.  As for all analyses at Cedar Grove, properly prepared sample containers and instructions are available at the laboratory.
