It was recently announced that Northern Lake Services was awarded a contract with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to monitor public drinking water systems across the United States. Northern Lake Services has facilities in Crandon and Waukesha, Wisconsin and is a proud Water Council member. Contracts like this are a display of the region’s growing water cluster and speak volumes to the work being done by our members.
The program is one of the requirements of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act and affects all public water systems that serve more than 10,000 people, Northern Lake Service said in a statement. The total value of the contract is $8.5 million. The contract involves analysis of drinking water samples collected from 800 randomly selected public water systems.
Northern Lake Services was born out of Wisconsin’s Inland Lake Renewal Program in 1974. The company provides environmental testing services to clients wishing to test drinking water, wastewater, groundwater, surface water, soil and other biomatrices. They have a dedicated staff of 35 analysts, technicians, and support staff with an average tenure of more than ten years within the company.
