Laboratories Certified in West Virginia
for the Bacteriological and/or Chemical Examination of Drinking
The state of West Virginia
Certifies water testing laboratories that meet a rigid set of guidelines for
proper testing. Labs must meet the basic criteria of promulgated EPA methodologies for drinking water. Once a lab becomes
certified, its services may be used by all public water supply systems to
determine the quality of their drinking water. The state will only accept data
and information about water quality that was prepared and tested by a state
certified lab. There are a variety of certified labs located throughout the
state as well as in other surrounding states.
The certification process
is completed by the Bureau for Public Health,
Laboratory Services. They publish a listing of certified labs several times per year for distribution to the public. We include this
listing on our site as a service to water well drillers and operators. If you
have further questions concerning the certification process or the lists, please
contact the Bureau for Public Health, Laboratory Services directly by contacting the Microbiological
Certification Officer at (304) 558-3530 or the Chemistry Certification Officer
at (304) 558-0197.
The certification status
of these labs is subject to change at any point. Labs may become certified at
anytime or may have their certification revoked. This listing reflects the general
publication of the listing at the date specified at the top of the listing.
The list is not continuously updated nor guaranteed for completeness or accuracy.
If you have any question about the status of a lab or need a confirmation, please
contact the Microbiological Certification Officer at (304) 558-3530 or the Chemistry
Certification Officer at (304) 558-0197.
