The Drinking Water and Sanitation Department started its water-testing laboratory at Ranchi. The unit has applied advanced technology to run at least 20 different tests.

The basic function of the laboratory will be to collect contaminated water samples from all the 24 district water testing labs and run a confirmatory test on these. If the district units miss something during testing, we at the state lab can check it. Also, random samples from different villages will be collected and tested at this lab.

The laboratory will have PH-meter and UV spectrometer to check heavy metal deposits but more advanced machines, like atomic absorption spectroscopy, gas chromatography and high performance liquid chromatography, will be brought in. The new machines will help us remove heavy metal, pesticide and organic compounds in water.
