The Mohawk Valley Water Authority has a certified laboratory to perform several chemical and microbiological analyses. The lab holds accreditation certificates from both New York and Pennsylvania. Every member of our technical staff has a Bachelor’s Degree, minimally, so you are assured a well-qualified team is analyzing samples on your behalf.
