Water Quality Tests Give Peace of Mind
With the ongoing escalation of hydraulic fracking by natural gas drillers and the continued use of herbicides and pesticides by residential and agricultural entities in our area, homeowners concerned about the quality of their drinking water can now turn to B.F. Environmental Consultants for drinking water testing services. Owner Brian Oram has been involved in sourcewater protection plans, private well ordinances, and regional watershed and groundwater assessments for over 25 years and is now available to consult with local homeowners and community water suppliers.
The company offers several informational water testing programs to determine levels of impurities including coliform, E. coli bacteria, nitrates, nitrites, copper, chloride, fluoride, sulfates, turbidity, and pH as well as 19 heavy metals and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, lead, arsenic and mercury.
“The amount of chemicals being used in modern living is staggering,” states Oram. “We know these chemicals are ending up in the soil, groundwater and municipal water systems and the presence of them in our bodies is unhealthy. Our testing services empower drinking water customers to determine what dangerous chemicals they are being exposed to. Once we know the challenge we can consult with the homeowner to eliminate the impurity.”
The home testing kits range in price from $40 for simple bacteria to over $200 for the most comprehensive evaluation. For more information, call 570-335-1947 or visit Water-Research.net. See ad, page 31.
