The Private Well Testing Act became effective in 2002. Briefly, this law mandates that whenever a property with a private well is sold or leased, certain drinking water tests must be preformed and the results given to both the buyer and seller prior to closing, or the lessor and lessee. Results must also be submitted electronically to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).
Homeowner & Private
Garden State Labs recommends to test annually for bacteria & nitrates, and every 5 years for the testing requirements of the PWTA for private homes with a well. Customers with public water (provided by the town) can also monitor for certain contaminants such as lead and bacteria. Feel free to reach out to us for help with those requests.
Public Water Systems
Public water systems vary in the State of New Jersey from a small Church to entire municipality water systems. Each requires an assortment of testing and reporting. Garden State Labs is familiar with drinking water requirements, E2 reporting, and compliance. Feel free to contact us with your questions or to set up testing.
Drinking Water Certificates
Regulators, such as the USDA, often require testing of water and ice used in the production of products and foods that are sold to the public. Garden State Labs is able to provide the sampling, analysis and certificates required for these types of circumstances.
