The Columbia County Central Laboratory was constructed in 1998 and staffed in 1999. The Laboratory mainly plays a supporting role within the waterworks. We assist other departments such as the Water and Wastewater Departments by accomplishing two main goals.

- Total Suspended Solids
- Biochemical Oxygen Demand
- Fecal Coliform Bacteria
Our second goal is to help ensure the safety and quality of
We also investigate water quality concerns that arise. Most water quality problems deal with aesthetic issues. If you have a problem or concern about your water quality, then you can call the laboratory Monday – Friday from 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM at (706) 868-3460. Or if we are out, you can call the main office at (706) 863-6928 and leave us a message.
Have a good day!
