Chemical Investigation Programme 2 (CIP2) 2017 update

chemical-investigation-programme-ALSALS Environmental are pleased to announce that Scottish Water have agreed to extend their CIP2 contract until December 2017. They’ve been extremely complimentary with the service and support that ALS have provided so far and are more than happy for it to continue.

The Chemical Investigation Programme (CIP2) is a project being undertaken by the Water Utility providers and the United Kingdom Water Industry Research (UKWIR) in response to the requirements of European Union Water Framework Directive (WFD) under framework 2000/60/EC. This Directive aims to classify each surface water body (rivers) within the EU as ‘good’ or above and in order to do so, levels of chemicals in each water system cannot breach set ‘Environmental Quality Standard’ (EQS) levels.

Additionally, the CIP sludge program was completed by ALS Environmental in January 2017, well ahead of the reporting deadline of April 2017. ALS analysed sludge samples for 7 of the 10 participating English and Welsh Water and Sewerage Companies, as well as continuing to analyse Scottish Water’s sludge samples throughout 2017. The analysis was split between our Wakefield and Coventry laboratories to run Metals and Emerging Organic contaminants respectively. 

Aaron Lewis, CIP Project Co-ordinator at ALS Environmental comments;

The progress made so far and the high level of quality of the analytical results are testament to the dedication and knowledge of all the staff involved in the CIP2 project at ALS. From the technical team that created the suite of robust methods used to analyse low level parameters in a range of challenging matrices, to the sampling, logistics and analysis teams that continually work to ensure the successful delivery of this project. Our commitment now is to maintaining this level of service for the remainder of the programme

We had potential water quality problem due to the actions of a third party and needed samples taken as a matter of urgency. Although this was outside the strict terms of our contract with ALS they were able to provide a sampler on a Friday afternoon, get the samples taken and returned to their labs for analysis.

They backed this excellent performance up by emailing us the sample results over the weekend. All in all a great piece of customer service!

Bob Windmill, Head of Water Quality, Independent Water Networks
