Landfill Testing Pennsylvania
Landfills are frequently the sites of accumulated toxic materials, which should come as no surprise. However, the waste is sourced from several different places, making them a high-risk zone for potential environmental damage. Landfill testing in Pennsylvania helps provide clients with actionable, defensible data regarding contaminant levels in landfills, informing project decisions and assisting with regulatory compliance.
The primary issue landfills face is being able to effectively leverage data for regular landfill monitoring, ensuring that surrounding groundwater tables are maintained to prevent excessive harmful materials from expanding into nearby ecosystems or human settlements. Suburban Testing Labs provides responsive landfill testing, both on-site and through our NELAP-accredited environmental testing laboratory, for high quality, accurate data reporting with a short turnaround period.
Our company was founded in 1963, amounting to decades of real-world experience backed by thousands of successful projects. Suburban Testing Labs has developed from a regional water testing company, primarily devoted to testing potable water samples for purity and safety, into the sixth largest single site laboratory in North America. Though we’ve expanded to cover a wider assortment of environmental testing services, our company’s goal is the same as when we first started: to protect public health and preserve the environment by providing reliable, high-quality, defensible data faster than our competitors.
Our Landfill Testing Services
Thorough regulation of landfills is established by their states, instituting numerous standards to uphold for preventing pollution of groundwater location and local areas. Landfills receive waste from a variety of sources, both industrial and domestic, leading to comprehensive safety measures and policies for redundant protections against contaminants leaking out. Landfill testing fulfills a fundamental requirement for measuring the quality of landfill groundwater.
Most landfills have on-site monitoring wells that provide direct access to groundwater tables around the perimeter of the landfills. Suburban Testing Labs offers extensive sample collection services that are equipped with cutting edge technology operated by field science professionals for sample collection, storage, documentation, and transport back to our facility for further landfill testing.
For more immediate results, our field scientists are also capable of sampling your monitoring wells and perform on-site analysis. A combination of technology, equipment, and extensive training prepares our technicians with everything they need to provide a satisfactory job, using portable composite samplers, monitoring well sampling equipment, and high calibration and equipment maintenance standards for superior results. Our field analysis provides insight into monitoring wells’ status, including:
- Dissolved oxygen
- Flow rate
- And more.
Once collected, whether you’re provided with on-site results or not, our teams prep samples for transport to our environmental testing facility, ensuring sample integrity is in accordance with EPA standards.
Every client is assigned a project manager to help assist them through every step of the landfill testing process. That includes working with your teams to arrange which reporting options work best for your needs, including a variety of accessible reporting methods such as:
- Online report Access
