The quality of surface water is monitored to safeguard human health and protect both aquatic life and the environment. 

The expression “Surface water” refers to the different types of water on earth: torrents, rivers, lakes, marshlands and sea water. They are thus different from groundwater flowing below earth’s surface, in soil or rock formations in the form of aquifers. Mérieux NutriSciences offers sampling and analyses of surface and treated water for public supply fully complying with international legislation and environmental standards. Water quality standards may vary according to the Country and the end use.

The monitoring of surface water quality is carried out to

  • ensure water safety
  • evaluate the impact of waste water deriving from agricultural and industrial activities
  • monitor water pollution
