Hilton Head Public Service District’s (PSD) Water Quality Laboratory has once again been recognized as a Laboratory of Excellence as part of its annual certification by the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). The independent agency that conducts DHEC’s certification recognized the PSD lab “achieving 100% acceptable data” in a group of hundreds of participating labs, according to a statement from the independent agency. “This achievement is a demonstration of the superior quality of the laboratory,” 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.
“The outstanding work of our PSD Water Quality Laboratory is foundational to our mission of providing clean drinking water to our customers and protecting the island’s environment through our recycled water program,” said PSD General Manager Pete Nardi.
