Potable Water Quality
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has established standards for potable water systems under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The SDWA authorizes the US EPA to set national health-based standards for drinking water to protect against both naturally occurring and manmade contaminants that made be found in drinking water. Chemicals that are improperly disposed of, human wastes, wastes injected deep underground, and naturally occurring substances can all pose a threat to drinking water. Drinking water that is not properly treated or travels through an improperly maintained distribution system may also pose a health risk.
Hillmann Consulting, LLC provides both preventative and complaint-based water quality testing services. A standard testing of water’s potability consists of drawing a sample from a subject property or water source for laboratory analysis. The contaminants we sample for will vary depending on the type of evaluation we’re performing and the source of the sample. Some consultants will test for the full range of contaminants, including Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which generally are not present in city water systems. At Hillmann Consulting, LLC, we’re committed to providing the most comprehensive and cost effective solutions for our clients, that’s why we take the time to design every sample analysis structure individually.
In addition to offering potable water testing services, Hillmann Consulting, LLC also provides Water Testing Baselines in areas where Natural Gas Drilling is being conducted. This service is available to home/business owners, particularly in the State of Pennsylvania where Natural Gas Drilling of the Marcellus Shale Formation is rapidly expanding. Natural Gas Drilling activities have the potential to impact drinking water therefore making it imperative to establish a baseline for well/spring water quality. Hillmann Consulting, LLC can custom design a plan to establish a baseline and continue monitoring water quality over a period of time in accordance with Pennsylvania State University Guidelines.
