Arranging and tracking sub-lab work is about as fun as watching paint dry. It’s refreshing to be able to fax over some permit pages to Hydrosphere and say, ‘I need to run this.’ The kits come within 48 hours, everything is handled accordingly, and the report shows up with a very clear summary page so there is no guessing as to whether the samples passed or failed.

Hydrosphere Research has been extremely helpful and professional in helping us address our toxicity issues. They conducted Phase I, II, & III TIE while working closely with our consultants for both regulatory compliance and relief. I’m extremely pleased with Hydrosphere Research’s results and service.

“Hydrosphere Research provides excellent service and meets our bioassay test needs with timeliness, professionalism, and flexibility. We have not had to repeat a single test due to unacceptable test criteria. Hydrosphere Research has been responsive to our need for acceptable and appropriate data and likewise to the needs of FDEP. Their mobile bioassay laboratory was adapted to our specific need for a chronic flow through test. These tests were conducted according to our plant’s strict timetable and without incident.”

Hydrosphere facility has far exceeded my expectations to reassure me that the test results provided to me as a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit requirement are in as much “control” as you can have with the least amount of “interference”.
Your explanation of control and interference is not only from what happens inside the lab but also trying to have some control of the outside environment of the entire building. Now that’s thinking outside the box!!…literally.
From the initial phone call to set up and confirm the sampling date and begin the process, the preliminary test results your staff provides me with and the support data included in the final report for me is definitely paying attention to detail.
In the future, when I receive a Hydrosphere final report I will remember that there is a great deal more work going on behind the scenes than just looking for the >100% to put on my Discharge Monitoring Report.
