People are more concerned with the quality of drinking water that they consume today than just a few years ago. For more than 25 years Q.C. Environmental (a division of Q.C. Metallurgical Laboratory Inc.) has been conducting drinking water testing for families, private well owners, public water supplies, well drillers, inspectors, real-estate professionals and businesses. Q.C. Environmental is State accredited in Iowa and Illinois for drinking water analysis. As part of our drinking water services we can provide you with preserved sampling containers, sample forms, sampling instructions, coolers and chain of custody forms. In cases where 3rd party testing is required, QCE can provided a technician to come to your location and collect samples.
