Redressal of environmental laboratory woes

Respected Environmentalists,

Trust you all are working hard towards achieving resolutions taken on 5th June, 2017.

Couple of day’s back I was reading a blog “How to test water quality? Here are some low-cost, low-tech options” shared by Jessica Anne Lawson on the World Bank site. The blogger has reservation on quality of water testing results by different laboratories. Immediately I felt to share my views. As I kept on writing, my thought process went on changing. It is true that environmental laboratories issue results that vary from each other. There are some exceptionally impractical results. Although, various mechanisms are available to deal with such unacceptable variations, for example – inter-laboratory participation (ILC) and Proficiency Test (PT); there is a need to ponder upon the following case studies:-

Mostly test reports of environmental laboratories are related to compliance requirement and therefore pass through many legally empowered authorities. Reporting of results does not improve unless there is an appropriate criticism that probably lacks from the end user’s side. The next blog also available at is based on Some case study and experience. 

Kindly have a glance and share your views.

Warm regards,

Sanjaya K Mishra
