The CFPUA laboratory is responsible for collecting and testing wastewater samples from the 2 wastewater treatment facilities currently in operation in our area. Samples are collected from the James A. Loughlin and M’Kean Maffitt plants every day and are tested in order to meet compliance and permit parameters. Additionally, the results are used to monitor and control the activated sludge and treatment processes.

Analyzed parameters include:
  • Alkalinity
  • Demand (biochemical, chemical, and oxygen)
  • Digester volatile acids
  • Metals
  • Nutrients (ammonia, phosphorus, etc.)
  • pH
  • Solids
