The Institutional Water Treatment Program, founded in 1949, provides advice to state facilities on the purchasing, specification, and implementation of chemical treatment for all of their water-using systems. The Public Service Laboratory has provided analytical testing and consultation to private citizens and a wide range of users throughout Illinois since the inception of the Water Survey in the late 1890's. The Analytical Services group provides chemical analyses in support of the research activities of Water Survey staff and external researchers.
