St.Germain Collins is an expert at wastewater quality monitoring, data interpretation, permitting/licensing, operations assistance and industrial pretreatment services. We understand that sample collection is as important as sample analysis, so we make sure that sampling is performed by experienced staff who are extremely familiar with sampling techniques as well as the automatic water samplers routinely used in wastewater monitoring.
