Laboratory Testing

The Mt. View Sanitary District Laboratory performs daily sampling and analyzing of various aspects in the wastewater treatment process occurring at the treatment facility. Daily laboratory procedures help the District ensure harmful bacteria and hard metals are removed before the disinfected treated waste water is discharged into Moorhen Marsh. Some of the tests performed by the Mt View Sanitary District Laboratory include:

  • Alkalinity
  • Conductivity
  • Hardness
  • pH
  • Total Suspended Solids (TSS)
  • Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD)
  • Dissolved Oxygen (DO)
  • Turbidity
  • Enterococci
  • Acute Toxicity

With an excellent Lab Analyst accompanied by a great operations staff, the District will continue to create high quality effluent for the marsh habitat while meeting the discharge requirements set forth by the State Water Resources Control Board.
