Waste Water Analysis

Correct treatment of wastewater is critical in preserving the health of the public and the environment.

The Coffs Harbour Laboratory regularly tests and monitors the quality of waste waters, biosolids, reclaimed water and the impact of waste discharges for the Coffs Harbour City Council, surrounding councils and private clients.

Our Wastewater testing and analysis includes:

  • pH
  • Conductivity
  • Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD)
  • Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD)
  • TOC
  • Oil and grease
  • Metals
  • Faecal¬†coliforms
  • Nitrogen
  • Suspended solids

As a NATA accredited laboratory, we monitor the results against national and international guidelines and provide advice on best management practices for water quality maintenance and distribution systems to maintain a safe and high-quality water supply.
