Basic Laboratory offers a complete range of testing to meet the needs of clients who have been issued National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permits. We have many years of experience reviewing these permits in order to assist our clients with establishing monitoring schedules that meet the permit requirements. If you are a new client, just send us a copy of your permit and we can review it and present a complete quote based on the testing methods and sampling frequencies laid out in the permit.

Visit our Environmental Services page on this web site to explore the various methods for which we are certified. You may also review our method detections limits (MDL) and reporting limits (RL) as well. If you don’t see what you need, just give us a call.


Basic Laboratory participates fully in the annual DMRQA performance testing study required by the EPA for most of our NPDES permit clients. All our DMRQA data is entered and managed online through Environmental Resource Associates. You can visit their web site at to set up an account which will allow you to review and submit your personalized DMRQA data quickly and easily online.

If you are required to participate, click on the link below to download our DMRQA client participation form. Fax or email the form back to us, and we will add you to our system.
