The laboratory testing includes bringing different types of soil samples from various origin /sites and then performs various tests on soil for getting results and comparing to standard values. Site investigations are also performed known as In-situ tests where applicable. The major equipments available in the laboratories are listed below:
The role of the laboratory is to provide qualitative and quantitative data to be used in decision-making. Decisions made using water and wastewater data are far reaching. In wastewater analysis, the laboratory data define the treatment plant influent, the status of the steps in the treatment process, and the final load imposed upon the water resources. Decisions on process changes, plant modifications or even the construction of a new facility may be based upon the results of laboratory analysis. The financial pressures alone are significant reasons for extreme care in the analysis. The value of the research effort will depend upon the validity of the laboratory results. Thus, learning to perform laboratory tests on water and wastewater plays an important role in the environmental engineering profession. The major equipments available in the laboratories are listed below:
