SeSCRIPT Analysis incorporates EPA analytical methods and site specific prescription services for improved management of algae and water quality. SeSCRIPT analysis and reporting is rapid, accurate and economical.

Why monitor?

Routine assessment of key water quality parameters provides valuable information about the health of a water body. Analysis and documentation of water quality parameters provide data necessary to prompt and assess management activities, establish and achieve ecological benchmarks and comply with regulatory thresholds.

Water Quality Analytical Services

Water Quality Baseline Bundle (WQ)

An analysis of baseline water quality parameters. 

The WQ Bundle provides quantitative analysis of baseline water quality parameters used in the assessment and management of water resources. EPA standard methods are utilized to quantify the following water parameters; alkalinity, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, hardness, pH, phosphorus (total and free reactive) and turbidity. Results are available within 7 days of sample receipt.

Water Quality Baseline Plus Bundle

Baseline water quality analysis plus complete nutrient assessment. 

This bundle includes the analysis covered in the WQ Baseline Bundle plus chlorophyll a, nitrates, nitrites and total nitrogen for a complete nutrient assessment. Reporting also includes a trophic index indicator. Results available within 7 days of sample receipt.

Water Quality Individual Bundle

You select the water quality parameters to quantify.

Individually select the water quality parameters to meet your water management objectives. Sample collection bottles are available from SePRO Corporation.

Algae ID Panel

When you simply need to know the algae present in your water body.

The panel services include algae identification, classification, description and density or biomass enumeration. The data generated from this analysis provides valuable information for the development and assessment of algae management programs. Results are available within 7 days of sample receipt.

Algae and Water Quality Baseline Plus Bundle

A complete assessment of algae and water quality conditions.

This bundle includes algae ID/enumeration, all the analytical services provided in the Water Quality Baseline Plus Bundle and a treatment prescription. Results are available within 7 days of sample receipt by the laboratory.

Comprehensive Algae Bioassay

The recommended analysis for the development of a custom treatment prescription when managing complex and challenging algae problems.

This analysis includes all the services of the Algae and Water Quality Baseline Plus Bundle. In addition, algae and water samples collected from the water body will be subjected to a multi-phase bioassay to evaluate site specific response to various algaecides. Data from the bioassay will be utilized to develop a custom treatment prescription for the water body.

Please contact SePRO to discuss project objectives and sample collection prior shipment to the laboratory.
