Water Quality Laboratory

Introduction

As the oldest water laboratory in Indonesia, Water Quality Laboratory (WQL), which was established in 1935, provides some services in water quality analysis and water and wastewater  treatment.

WQL has been a Water and Wastewater Quality Assessment Laboratory since 2003 which is accredited by National Accreditation Committee.

Since the year of 2007, WQL has two division, that are Water Laboratory and Environmental Microbiology Laboratory.

Analysis

Water Quality Charatizations are the important matter in potable and clean water supply. WQL is capable in analysing the phisical, chemical, and biological parameters of water quality according to the Indonesian National Standard and International Standard.

Environmental Pollution has become national main issues. Domestic and industrial wastewater are potential in polluting the surrounding area. These wastes have different characteristic with raw and clean water. WQL has the experiences in analysing the phisical, chemical, and biological parameters of water quality according to the Indonesian National Standard and International Standard.

Activity

WQL plays a role in three activities, that are educational, research and community services.

For educational and research activites, WQL provides a work place, equipments and assistances for the student of Environmental Engineering Study Program. The  community services. In community services, WQL receives water and wastewater sampling and analysing. All of WQL’s activites are supported by experienced and certified analysts and technician.

WQL together with the Water and Wastewater Engineering Research Group (WWE) provide consultacy services in water and wastewater characterisation and the alternative solution for water and wastewater treatment.

WQL some regular training activities in water and wastewater sampling techniques and water and wastewater quality analysis for water treatment and environmental monitoring purposes.

Co-operation

WQL has some co-operation with some public and private institutions such as BAPEDAL, Puslitbangkim, PERPAMSI, Pertamina, Departement of Health, the Ministery of Environment, Depatment of Industiral, Ebara, Astra Group , etc.
