Geochemical Testing is a NELAP accredited analytical laboratory that is certified in over 1000 parameters of chemical analysis. This broad scope allows us to test groundwater, storm water, surface water, wastewater, soil, residual waste, oil and gas drill cuttings, production and frack water and more for a large number of contaminants and chemical properties. Most importantly, our project managers are adept at helping you meet and face every challenge that comes with the complexities of environmental compliance. We have the experience and know-how to help you keep your project on budget and on time. Our clients range from individuals and small businesses to Fortune 500 companies and include landfill operators, coal producers, utilities, municipalities, environmental consultants, state and federal government agencies.
Geochemical Testing is NELAP accredited through our home state of Pennsylvania which is an accrediting body of TNI - The NELAC Institute www.nelac-institute.org We hold certifications with numerous states through the process of reciprocity whereby they accept our NELAP certification from our home state thereby conforming to a national standard. There are many states that have their own requirements for certification of laboratories and may or may not accept NELAP by reciprocity. Read more...
Our highly trained teams are outfitted with PPEs to safely sample frack water, production water, drill cuttings or soil samples from your well pad sites, tank farms, containment or transport facilities. We use established Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for the sampling of Wastewater Frack Tanks, Triton Tanks, Wastewater Sand Traps and in the sampling of lined wastewater impoundment pits. Geochemical Testing will also come to your site to get samples of your drill cuttings, drilling mud, and any other solid that needs to be tested for disposal or compliance purposes. Read more...

In addition to laboratory analysis we can provide the service of collecting a representative sample from your site. Our technical field service technicians bring extensive sampling experience to your projects. Whether it is the collection of a representative coal sample from rail cars or groundwater samples from landfill monitoring wells or surface water and pre-drill baseline drinking water testing; we provide a safe and efficient collection of your samples. Combine your sampling and analysis for increased efficiency and quick turn around time! Call Geochemical Testing client services today for a quote at (814) 443-1671 Read more...
Geochemical Testing works with many environmental consultants and environmental engineers in the Eastern USA who represent companies that are seeking permits or are in the process of maintaining compliance with environmental regulations. We can provide analysis (and sampling if needed) of groundwater, storm water runoff, stream and pond waters, leachates and other liquids. We provide sampling and analysis of soil and solids where contamination is suspected or remediation is needed, and where cleanup and remediation efforts need to be verified and documented.

Geochemical Testing provides a wide range of analytical tests. Here are some typical groups of tests that we perform on a regular basis for our clients. The test groups below pertain primarily to Pennsylvania DEP forms but most states have similar groupings. Call our regulations specialist for more information at 814-443-1671
This is the PADEP's form that a waste generator would use to request to process or dispose of residual waste. This could be to test any solid that needs to be disposed of such as oil and gas drill cuttings, industrial process waste materials, contaminated soil, or other materials that needs to be sent to the landfill.
This is the PA DEP's form that is used by generators of non hazardous residual waste that requires laboratory analysis of a solid or liquid material or sludge that results from industrial, mining and agricultural operations including wastewater treatment facilities. We typically analyze frack and production water for oil and gas companies using the PA Form 26R parameter lists.
This is the PA form that Sewage Treatment facilities use to request approval to process or dispose of sewage sludge. We provide this suite of analyses to WWTPs on an annual basis.
Yes, we routinely prepare state forms (with your analytical results) for you for PA Form 50, PA Form 52, Pa Form 19, PA Form 14R and a special form for WV sites. Additionally we pre-populate your DMR forms for stormwater and monthly NPDES reporting. Call our Client Services for more information 814-443-1671
