The Regional San Environmental Laboratory has been in operation
at the Sacramento Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant (SRWTP)
since 1982. The laboratory employs trained, professional
environmental scientists and technical staff committed to
providing quality services to meet both routine and challenging
analytical needs for studies or monitoring programs.
Our goal is to consistently provide our customers with reliable,
high‑quality environmental laboratory services. In order to
achieve this objective, we maintain close working relationships
with our customers and offer manageable solutions tailored to
meet individual customer or program needs.
In addition to providing the standard
services (including trace metals, organics, conventional
chemistry, bacteriological, microbiological and toxicological
analysis), the laboratory also conducts field monitoring and
sample collection of ground waters and monitors the water quality
of the Sacramento and American Rivers around the Sacramento
metropolitan area. To accomplish this task, the laboratory owns
the Guardian, a 27-foot, all-weather aluminum boat. At least once
a week, a laboratory boat crew travels the river, collecting
water samples and performing water quality measurements of the
river at various locations.
