Testing Departments

Hargeisa Water Quality Control Laboratory( HWQCL) is made up of three different  department. Each and every department is full equipped and fully operating.

MICROBIOLOGY DEPARTMENT:

Microbiological water analysis is a method of analyzing water to estimate the numbers of bacteria present and to allow for the recovery of microorganisms in order to identify them. Here we test the following bacteria:

1.E.coli

2.Total Coliform

3.Fecal Coliform

4.Salmonella 

5.Cholera 

6.Plate Count

 

CHEMICAL DEPARTMENT:

Chemical tests determine the amounts of mineral and organic substances that affect water quality. Here we testing the following Minerals:

Arsenic         Cadmium               Copper                 Sodium                  Sulfate                Zinc                Cyanide

Fluoride       Manganese             Iron                      Lead                       Nitrate               Nitrate           Chloride 

Calcium        Boron                    Potassium             Hardness                Alkalinity 

 

PHYSICAL DEPARTMENT:

Physical tests indicate properties detectable by the senses. Chemical tests determine the amounts of mineral and organic substances that affect water quality. Here we test:

1.PH

2.Turbidity

3.Electrical Conductivity (EC)

4.Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)

5.Salinity
