Last week marked a first for Exo Environmental, our inaugural water sampling
job at Duration brewery!
Located in West Acre, Norfolk, employed Exo Environmental to conduct water
sampling from its Bio-reactor and Klargester outflows.
A total of 6 samples were taken, 3 from each source, using special sterilised
1000ml plastic bottles and glass jars and 40ml vials. The reason we have different
sampling receptacles is that each will be tested for different determinands. For
example, glass jars and glass vials are typically used for Total Petroleum
Hydrocarbons (TPH) and plastic bottles are used for a general environmental
suite, which will measure a number of parameters including Biochemical oxygen
Demand (BOD), and pH.
Following analysis of these samples in an accredited laboratory, Exo will write
up the results for Duration Brewing and these will help inform the client on
water quality and if any changes are required to their wastewater treatment
processes to meet environmental regulations.
As part of this work, we have developed a long-term sampling campaign with
the brewery to help track wastewater quality throughout the year, to get a more
comprehensive understanding of the data.
We are looking forward to working further with Duration Brewing to help deliver
good environmental wastewater standards. Cheers!

services for clients of all sizes. From a small back garden pond, brewery wastewater
