WLA Resource for
Accessing Laboratory Support
S>EPA
This WLA resource can be used to identify analytical support
through five routes.
The Water Laboratory Alliance (WLA) provides the
analytical capability and capacity to respond to incidents involving
chemical, biological or radiochemical contaminants.
Scenarios requiring analytical support could include when a
utility or laboratory does not have the capability to analyze an
unregulated contaminant or the capacity to analyze a large
number of samples, or if an analyst or instrument is unavailable.
