May 30, 2008 -- Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has published a position paper on its capabilities for monitoring public water systems for emerging contaminants, such as pharmaceuticals. With public safety the central issue, UL understands that it is important to educate the drinking water community of the testing services available to them.
As a recognized leader in the industry and a partner to many municipalities and water treatment centers, UL has been testing for emerging contaminants for nearly 10 years. UL is one of the few laboratories across the nation with the capabilities to test for a broad range of contaminants, using fewer methods therefore streamlining the testing process and reducing the cost.
