Dredging Sediment Analysis
North Water District Laboratory Services, Inc. (NWDLS) is a full service laboratory that performs chemical analyses for inorganic and organic constituents in dredging sediment. For more than twenty-two years, national engineering firms have regularly utilized NWDLS for their chemical analyses and additional lab support needs. Most notably, NWDLS has partnered with a firm for its Environmental Impact Study project. The project consists of twenty separate sites that are evaluated quarterly by chemical analyses of sediment, water, and PORE water matrices. Also, NWDLS, currently performs the chemical analyses of samples entailing tissue, sediment, water, and elutriate for the Army Corps of Engineers dredging projects. NWDLS has the NELAP accreditation necessary to satisfy the requirements of USACE protocols as well as private protocols for dredging application, and the instrumentation to achieve the target detection limits.
