Water Analysis

MEC’s analytical environmental testing laboratory employs current methodology in the analysis of storm water, wastewater, ground water, and process samples. MEC has continued to invest in the latest analytical and environmental laboratory instrumentation to offer a wide spectrum of analytical services. We have the capacity to provide analytical services for small and large mining and industrial companies, utilities and municipalities. Our State of the Art Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is a fully-integrated database, improving management from field sampling through report generation and invoicing. This ensures integrity of samples, precision of analytical results, and accuracy of documentation.
The various educational backgrounds and knowledge of our team provide MEC with the ability to offer comprehensive services within a contemporary analytical laboratory network.  Below is a partial listing of our analytical services:
