Environmental Laboratory

The Environmental Laboratory is equipped with equipment and instrumentation needed for the basic chemical and biological characterization of water, wastewater, and air samples.  Several bench and pilot-scale treatment systems are also available for instructional and research purposes.  Undergraduate students use the laboratory as an integral part of their environmental engineering coursework and to examine the practicality of innovative treatment systems that may be components of their capstone design projects.  Student use of the lab is preceded by appropriate safety training and instruction on the use the requisite equipment and instrumentation.
