Utility Systems Science & Software (US3) provides sewer water sampling nationwide. We understand that the collection of accurate and representative samples is one the first and most critical steps towards the generation of accurate laboratory analytical data. US3 has the experience and depth of resources to ensure that the samples we collect are representative.

US3 supplies all of the instrumentation (automatic wastewater sampling, wastewater flow metering, grab sampling, and pH monitoring), manpower and reporting for Cities and Agencies that require accurate assessment of their sewer system. Our services include the collection of representative (time- or flow-based) composite and grab samples, preservation in accordance with 40 CFR part 136, chain of custody, and coordination of laboratory analytical services.

US3's comprehensive sewer water assessment will be tailored to match your budget. We simply need to know the location and we take it from there.

US3's wastewater sampling capabilities are extensive; in fact we are pleased to offer wet chemistry parameters for wastewater but also ground water and surface water.

We are certified for a variety compliance programs, include 40 CFR 257, 261, 423, 503, CCR 22 STLC, RWQCB Ocean Plan, EPA & CDPH Drinking Water Standards, among others. If you do not see the parameter you need, please contact us, as we may offer it under a different name, or be able to accommodate a special request.
