The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has selected Babcock Laboratories, Inc. to provide analytical laboratory services in support of the fourth round of its Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule program (UCMR 4). As a contractor to the USEPA, Babcock Labs will conduct UCMR 4 water quality testing for up to 800 community water systems and non-transient, non-community water systems serving between 25 – 10,000 people (i.e., small systems) across the nation.
"The award of this contract is a testament to the water industry's trust and confidence in Babcock Labs," commented Allison Mackenzie, CEO of Babcock Labs. "We have supported the EPA's UCMR program since its inception and are proud to yet again provide our technical expertise to both small and large water systems participating in UCMR 4."
Earlier this year Babcock Labs became fully certified by the USEPA to conduct all UCMR 4 analyses. This means that Babcock Labs is approved to provide UCMR 4 testing services to all public water systems that are required to participate in the three-year program, which officially commences January 2018.
Babcock Labs has received certification for each round of UCMR since the beginning of the program over fifteen years ago. Its experience with the program and expert staff make Babcock Labs an excellent resource for UCMR 4 testing services.

And make sure to join Babcock Labs on January 31, 2018, for its next UCMR 4 Workshop!
