Environmental Chemistry

The Chemistry Laboratory supports the environmental protection functions of the state government by performing chemical analysis on samples collected by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) and Tennessee Department of Health (TDH).

Consisting of two sections, General Inorganic Chemistry and Metals, the laboratory focuses on monitoring the quality of environmental and drinking water.  Samples tested are typically sourced from lakes, streams, rivers, ponds, open wells, private wells, unprotected springs, or from any source where there is visible evidence of contamination.
