Whitney Wu – Lab Manager
Our certifications in both Indiana and Kentucky continue to allow us to offer a wide range of drinking water testing to clients throughout both states. Spring/summer is always a busy time for us, and the season is fast approaching. However, this spring/summer promises to bring us an EXCEPTIONALLY large number of samples for drinking water testing – SOC , VOC, IOC, TTHM & HAA5, copper and lead testing – and as usual our well-seasoned laboratory/office staff is up for the challenge.
I’m sure that some of you are ready for your next shipment of bottles, so if you have an established bottle delivery schedule with us, your 2nd quarter drinking water bottles will be sent out by April 15th. As for all of our Summer pool clients, you should expect your bottles at least one week prior to Memorial Day Weekend. Now, if you’re one of those few clients that have yet to set up a bottle shipment schedule, and you prefer to call on an “as-needed” basis, we’re here to help you in any way we can, just don’t wait till the last minute to order!!
We’re in the process of opening two more labs in New Albany and Lafayette to better serve our clients; the addition of these two new laboratories, along with our other three established satellite laboratories – Plymouth, New Castle, Carmel – will bring us to a total of 5 satellite laboratories throughout the state of Indiana. Besides providing testing services, each of the professional laboratory operators, at our satellite labs, have the ability to provide sample collection and well treatment (chlorination) services in each of their respective geographic locations. We encourage you to contact us should you find that you require any of the aforementioned services.
The expansion of our labs for sample preparation and waste water/solids analysis is underway so that we might better serve our clients in testing for organic contaminants in waste water and solids; in the very near future, we will have the capabilities to test for contaminants in both volatile and semi-volatile organic samples.
As always, we are constantly striving to provide our clients with quality data. If correctly utilized, our knowledgebase can act as one of our clients’ most valuable assets. Should you have any technical questions regarding Drinking Water, Waste Water or Solid Waste contaminants, don’t hesitate to contact us. We also invite feedback concerning all aspects of the workflow between ELI and our clients, so contact me by phone or email and tell me how awesome we are! I look forward to working with you! -Whitney
