Experience

ARL Group has provided analytical testing services to Western Australia’s major water service providers, environmental consultants, resources companies, government entities and healthcare providers for over 30 years.

The Group’s NATA accredited testing gives water sector managers and operators confidence in the physical and chemical quality and safety of the materials and products they manage.

The laboratories are industry leaders in providing very low reporting limits for organic parameters such as pesticides, as well as offering specialised water test capabilities that are unique in Australia. Additionally, the Group is an AQIS approved laboratory for Microbiological testing

ARL Group fully understand the importance of due diligence, compliance, and the requirement of the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG) for rigorous procedures for the daily review of drinking water quality monitoring data.
