As a resource for drinking water, surface water requires special protection. WESSLING controls the water quality in streams, rivers, natural lakes and artificial quarry ponds on behalf of companies and authorities with specific analysis.
The condition of water surfaces in Germany is of great importance for the quality of life and health. In the course of the renaturation of gravel pits or lignite mining areas, for example, new quarry ponds are being created, which pose specific challenges to authorities, water management and industry. Due to dense settlement, hardly any of these waters in Germany are still in natural condition. The Ordinance on the Protection of Surface Waters (OGewV) and the individual national laws contain precise guidelines. WESSLING supports companies and authorities in quality assurance with sampling, precise laboratory analysis and process-accompanying consulting.
WESSLING assists companies and authorities in analysing surface waters and taking measures if required. Lakes and rivers contaminated with micropollutants that have entered the water via degradation products of pesticides and pharmaceutical residues constitute a great challenge.
The analysis of substances and groups of substances is carried out in our laboratories using state-of-the-art trace analysis technology. Our specialists follow the daughter directive 2008/105/EC of the EU WFD of 16/12/2008 (binding environmental quality standards for priority substances).
