River Testing

With Sewage spills, Nutrient pollution, Industrial and chemical waste in our water ways and germs carried into our rivers by heavy rain, there is an increasing risk of infection or illness caused by microorganisms in rivers.

Our River Water Testing Kits are recommended for fisheries, angling clubs, charities which monitor the quality of fresh water as well as farmland with ponds & rivers.

Sewage and bacteria can be confirmed by carrying out a coliform/E.coli and enterococci test. Testing for chemical oxygen demand (COD) gives an indication of the amount of dissolved oxygen in water. Nutrient pollution can be tested by checking levels of coliform/E.coli, enterococci, ammonia, nitrate and phosphate in water.
