Recommended Best Practices for Basins

Agreement Between Laboratory and Basins


This agreement between labs and basin organizations is intended to help standardize how data is reported to WWKY and help streamline the data entry process. The majority of the contract should be considered mandatory, especially the dilution of samples, the reporting in Appendix A, and the data entry format.

Sections E and H are considered optional and may be omitted at the Basin Group’s discretion, as some basins do not need bottles provided, and some labs cannot complete analysis within 2 weeks at the current cost.

For questions about the contract please contact Dale Booth, SCIAD Chair,
