Testing lead in water will allow families to detect and reduce their lead exposure
Healthy Babies Bright Futures (HBBF) is making Lead in Water Action Kits available to families across the U.S. so they can test their tap water for the presence of lead and take action to reduce exposure. HBBF has partnered with Virginia Tech to offer an in-home kit that can detect most lead hazards in water. Each family's water samples are sent for analysis to Virginia Tech's lab - the same lab that uncovered lead contamination in Washington, D.C., and, most recently, Flint, Mich.
The Smart Brew Kit and Smart Brew Advanced Kit are handheld smart photometer systems for measuring a craft brewer’s water quality. Using the eXact iDip Smart Photometer System, the kits integrate two-way wireless communication with a smartphone. The kits measure calcium and magnesium hardness, chloride, pH, sodium, sulfate, total alkalinity and total hardness. The Advanced Kit includes the VisionPlus digital pH meter.
This biopolymer test kit is designed to be used on site and provides real-time, accurate results in minutes. Every minute counts in sensitive storm water runoff situations, and waiting for results could lead to detrimental environmental impact at a job site. The new test kit is economical ($4 per test) and includes materials for up to 100 field tests.
Water treatment can be a complex problem to solve, depending on which contaminants may be present and the desired water quality. There are a variety of contaminants that can make water unsafe to drink, such as microorganisms, inorganic metals and other inorganic compounds, organic chemicals and radiologicals. The presence of certain contaminants like calcium, magnesium and iron may not affect the safety of the water, but can make it unpleasant to drink and more difficult to clean with.
Water quality testing can be a critical part of a company’s process. Whether it is a screening method for different water quality parameters, part of a process that requires the addition or subtraction of chemicals, or even compliance monitoring for consumables and effluents, water quality testing is a major part of the quality control process.

Wagtech water quality testing kits allow all levels of users to test for organisms, analyze key physical characteristics such as turbidity and conductivity, and measure specific chemical parameters such as pH, chlorine and ammonia, using simple, accurate procedures. Testing protocols conform to World Health Organization guidelines for assessment of potable water, and kits are chosen based on testing needs. All equipment is packed in IP67-rated carry cases with energy-efficient battery-operated instruments for use anywhere.
This multi-parameter test strip for drinking water tests free chlorine, total chlorine, pH, hardness, nitrate and nitrite with a single dip in less than 45 seconds. The strip, order code 2933-G, is appropriate for both municipal and well water applications. Each vial contains 25 test strips and is packaged in LaMotte’s exclusive flip-top vial with integrated desiccant liner and waterproof full-color chart on the label.
Isaac Plains is an open-cut coal mine in northern Queensland, Australia, that operates under an environmental authority. One of the environmental monitoring requirements that must be met is water monitoring. This includes monitoring potable water, mine-affected water, natural creek flows, water releases, groundwater and the receiving environment.
