Thank you to everyone who attended our UCMR 4 Workshop this month – the event was completely sold out! With UCMR 4 just around the corner, we are happy that we were able to inform you about the methods, analyses, special requirements, and responsibilities of the newest round of the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR 4) and answer your questions. We have two upcoming workshops: our semi-annual Drinking Water Workshop and a second UCMR 4 Workshop.
Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) has released its proposed Drought Contingency Plan in response to expected supply shortages and demand increases. Given California’s recent bouts with extreme drought, it is vital that water agencies develop short-term and long-term plans that factor in drought conditions, water supply, and population needs.
Stormwater season is upon us! Under the current Industrial General Permit (IGP) permit holders are required to collect and analyze stormwater samples from each discharge location for two Qualified Stormwater Events (QSEs) within the first half of each reporting year (July 1 to December 31), and two (2) QSEs within the second half of each reporting year (January 1st to June 30th).
There are major changes underway for Lead and Copper reporting and Babcock Laboratories is on the leading edge!
The State of California is transitioning to a new electronic submittal process for Lead and Copper data via a Lab-to-State (LTS) Portal. Babcock Labs participated in beta testing of the State's new LTS Portal and was one of the few labs to be first registered on the Portal.
This month Babcock Laboratories, a leader in the environmental testing industry, attended the National Environmental Monitoring Conference (NEMC). Both our Senior Chemist, David Schiessel, and our Corporate Communications Director, Alexandra Chrystal, gave presentations at this year’s meeting, which took place August 7th - 11th in Washington, D.C.
