National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System
The National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program is a centerpiece of the Clean Water Act (CWA), which regulates the discharge of wastewater into United States waters. All identified sources of wastewater must obtain a NPDES permit and withstand intense regulatory scrutiny.
Neilson Research Corporation performs regular monthly NPDES monitoring for cities, counties, school and government entities, and industrial and commercial facilities. Close attention is paid to changing requirements and deadlines so that fines and penalties are avoided. As part of our service to you, NRC will provide everything necessary for your required analysis including a convenient shipping container, sample bottles, ice packs, sampling instructions, and chain of custody and shipping documentation.
