Not all test results are created equally. Different legal regimes and technical protocols deal with testing water quality in lake, river, surface and ground waters. This program will explore the legal requirements for testing, and provide detailed explanations of testing protocols involved, enabling better understanding of best practices and problems to avoid. Participants will gain insight into what to look for in assessing the explanations of testing methodology and procedures contained in many consultants' reports on water quality. No longer will boilerplate recitations cause eyes to glaze over.
