TestAmerica's Support of Long Term Groundwater Monitoring

TestAmerica partners with clients performing routine groundwater monitoring, utilizing a programmatic approach to lower costs and mitigate client risk.  Our programmatic approach to groundwater monitoring includes many services including sampling support, industry leading laboratory analyses, and customized data delivery options to meet your individualized and regulatory needs.   

To ensure the success of a long term monitoring project, TestAmerica suggests the development of a Sampling and Analysis Plan (SAP), together with the lab, to establish key information that will be utilized in our programmatic approach.  Information in the SAP includes primary points of contact, sampling schedules, required reporting limits and background analyte concentrations present at the site.  Utilizing this information, TestAmerica provides support to clients in the following key areas:

Sampling Support

TestAmerica provides coolers, packing material, certified pre-cleaned bottles with applicable preservatives to prevent leakage, and pre-printed chains of custody directly to the sampling site or office.  Our bottle kits reduce the potential of error in the field by providing the correct containers with the applicable preservatives and paperwork based upon the analyses outlined in the SAP. 

Laboratory Analysis

Samples received at the laboratory are logged into our industry leading Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) based on the information provided on the chain of custody and the SAP.  Sample receipt confirmation forms detailing sample collection information and requested analyses will be sent to client contacts after receipt to reduce error potential, and ensure proactive communication with clients.

Data Delivery

TestAmerica’s network of more than 80 locations across the nation are linked by a single LIMS, allowing TestAmerica to provide clients with one report or EDD, regardless of where samples are analyzed within our network.  Our single platform also allows our analysts to perform historical data review and comparisons to background levels to identify outliers or data anomalies prior to reporting data.  Once data is ready to report, clients have the option to receive their data in one of our 2,500 formats, as well as via our online data portal, TotalAccess.  To learn more about TestAmerica’s data delivery options, visit our Data Solutions webpage.
