COVID-19 UPDATE: WE ARE OPEN and welcome your samples!
Please take note of the following changes in MEL protocol due to our COVID-19 social-distancing efforts:
- > Please DO NOT ENTER THE BUILDING without prior permission. In fact, the door is now locked– but we’re OPEN!
- > RECEPTION IS NOW OUTSIDE THE BUILDING, AT OUR ENTRANCE DOOR. When you arrive, please call us upstairs at 846-6569 or buzz the intercom to let us know that you are here; we will come down to meet you. Alternatively, bang on the door and call up the stairs. For those of you who have dragged coolers up our stairs for 30 years, this will come as a welcome improvement in service!
Thanks for your patience and understanding!
Maine Environmental Laboratory performs analyses on samples of all kinds: drinking water, waste water, soil, ash, sludge, manure, wood chips, paint chips, shop rags, railroad ties, food slurry, dredge spoils, dirty oil, construction debris, mystery matrix… You name it, we’ve tested it.
We are a multi-purpose, full-service, one-stop shop: if we can’t do it ourselves, we will find a lab that can do it for you, and coordinate the bottles, shipping and reporting for you.
Our clients are industries and small organizations with regulated discharge permits, municipalities, engineering firms, the State of Maine, energy companies, and a whole lot of folks who want to ensure their well water is safe to drink.
Please contact us to discuss your special needs; we welcome custom projects and can scale up to fit your project.
We are nationally accredited for the following in-house analyses:
