Sewage Bacteria Testing

Why sewage bacteria testing is important

Sewage bacteria testing is important because it helps identify and monitor levels of contamination from various sources, such as wastewater treatment plants, industrial sites, agricultural runoff, and residential sewage systems.

Testing for sewage bacteria also allows for proactive management strategies to be put in place to reduce the risk of contamination and help protect public health.
