The laboratory at UAJA is equipped to do most testing required by our NPDES permit as well as all process control testing needed to operate the facility. NPDES testing is performed 5 days per week. Tests include BOD (biochemical oxygen demand), TSS (total suspended solids), Ammonia Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Fecal Coliform. Stringent effluent discharge limitations placed upon UAJA due to the high quality nature of its receiving stream, Spring Creek, make precision, accuracy, and consistency paramount in our lab.
