Wastewater is any water that has been produced from human activities. This can include waters from domestic premises, commercial properties, industry and agriculture. All these produce effluents that combine to form wastewater which can contain varying different concentrations of contaminants.
Wastewater must be produced from any wastewater treatment to meet stringent standards. These standards are set out in the Urban Waste Water Treatment Regulations, 2001 (S.I. 254 of 2001), were made on 14 June 2001 and amended on 15 July 2004. The Regulations give further effect to the provisions of EU Council Directive 91/271/EEC of 21 May 1991, as amended concerning urban waste water treatment, and Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC of 23 October 2000.
EES carries out laboratory analysis according to the Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater, 21st edition. This is the internationally recognised book by which proceedures are based on.
The following is a list of some of the analysis that EES can carry out:
