Groundwater testing protects groundwater resources and the environment.
Most of the Earth’s fresh water is groundwater (traditionally considered to be water within 100 meters of the surface of the earth) and can contain many constituent parts, including microorganisms, gases, inorganic and organic materials. Groundwater must be protected from the adverse effects of agricultural and industrial pollution to safeguard the environment, protect sources of drinking water and avoid well water contaminations. Scientific analysis on groundwater samples can determine if there is evidence of negative environmental impact.
