FULL SAMPLE- BASELINE WATER SAMPLING RECOMMENDED

A bacteria, inorganic panel, and a nitrate/nitrate is provided.  This is the best value for elective sampling at the wellhead with an extra inorganic panel at a point of use after any filtration or treatment system and/or a bacteria sample at a point of use after mechanical or chemical disinfection system.
