The Laboratory and Field Services offered by Kleinfelder supplement our capabilities in performing water quality studies and better enable us to deliver sound analyses based on accurate results and proper procedures. We have decades of experience in collecting samples from streams, treatment plant effluent, lakes and ponds, stormwater runoff, and biological habitats in or near water bodies. These samples have been collected under conditions of high flow and low flow, as well as during rain events. In addition to collecting samples for analysis, Kleinfelder also has the equipment, experience, and capability to measure the physical characteristics of the water bodies being studied. This includes measuring flow across a stream, taking stream cross sections, measuring the depth of light penetration in lakes and streams, and performing lake bathymetry.
Kleinfelder maintains and runs a New Jersey certified laboratory for a small subset of water quality parameters, allowing us to collect measurements for the following parameters: pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen, conductivity, salinity, and chlorine. We also own and maintain all the necessary equipment for sampling these parameters. Kleinfelder is well versed in the techniques necessary to collect samples for a wide range of pollutants, and we frequently collaborate with many certified outside laboratories for additional analyses when necessary.
