Bacterial Water Analysis $20.00

The Upper Leon River Municipal Water District Lab is accredited by NELAP for microbial analysis of coliform organisms (bacteria) in drinking water.  In short, the Lab is certified to do state-approved Bac-T testing. The following is a short summary of procedures and costs.

All samples must NOT be over 30 hours old when tested and require Certified Lab personnel to authenticate all certified results. Sampling, therefore, should be done immediately prior to delivery to the laboratory and must adhere to the above receiving schedule in order to have personnel available to manage testing procedures. To ship samples, prior arrangements must be made with lab personnel.  Samples received outside of the times listed above or samples that will exceed the 30 hour time period prior to testing WILL NOT BE TESTED.

Paper Work:  Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) approved Microbial Monitoring Form must be completed for each set of samples (max 10 per form). Clik here for link to information about paperwork needed to submit a sample.

**Receipt of samples at times other than those posted by prior arrangement only. Contact Lab Tech at or or by phone (254) 879-BacT (254-879-2228) for further information.

There is a $20.00 fee per water sample. Because our policy does not permit the testing of water samples without payment, please include payment when submitting your sample(s).

If you need further clarification or have other questions regarding water tests, please call  the lab directly at (254) 879-2228.
