The independent agency that conducts DHEC’s certification recognized the PSD lab “for achieving 100% acceptable data in this study which included 667 participating laboratories.” 

“This achievement is a demonstration of the superior quality of the laboratory in evaluation,” according to the statement. The PSD Water Quality Laboratory conducts thousands of tests annually on the quality of our tap water and treated recycled wastewater. It is led by Water Quality Supervisor Sarah Hickman. 

“Hilton Head PSD’s outstanding Water Quality Laboratory is a key component of our daily work to ensure high-quality drinking water, and effective wastewater treatment,” said PSD General Manager Pete Nardi.
