Laboratories that analyze drinking water and wastewater form a critical component of our public health infrastructure, guided by criteria in legislation including the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and the National Pollution Discharge Elimination Program (NPDEP). These facilities are required to handle high volumes of sewage and drinking water to analyze for wet chemistry and microbiology before discharge into community water systems. This requires the facilities to maintain continuous sampling programs, thorough recordkeeping and identification of non-conforming samples.

In recent years ozone laundry technology has proven itself to be an effective tool in helping to reduce water usage and energy consumption while also reducing wash and dry times, ensuring the absence of microorganisms, and improving the quality and useful life of laundered products. There are economic advantages to an ozone system as well as microbiological and environmental benefits. Currently in the United States there are over 2,000 ozone laundry systems in place and as many as 3,000 more in the United Kingdom alone.

Water is essential for life. It is part of the environment, being used in industrial processes and available as tap water. To secure the safety of water that is daily available, the amount of necessary microbiology tests to comply with regulatory requirements are increasing and are heavily relying on quick and accurate answers to confirm the identities of a broad selection of important micro-organisms.

In 1985, the University of Surrey in collaboration with Oxfam developed the Oxfam DelAgua Portable Water Quality Monitoring Test Kit. The Oxfam DelAgua kit enables field workers to test water quality in remote and isolated situations and in circumstances where there is no access to a water testing laboratory. Since its development in 1985, the water test kit has been used by all the major International NGO-s and other aid agencies in over 130 countries around the world.
In 2006, The University of Surrey and other investors founded DelAgua Water Testing Limited to take over the management of the DelAgua organisation. Since then, various improvements have been made, including:
- The upgrading of all kits
- The upgrade of the design, manufacturing and distribution functions
- R&D to produce a portable microbiological testing kit that provides quantitative results in less than 20 minutes.
- The upgrade of existing services and the introduction of new services, including:
- Free access to a water quality risk assessment software program on DWT`s website
- Free access to a library of reference documents on DWT`s website
In addition to distributing its own kits and consumables, DWT also offers a distribution service for other manufacturers` products. The most popular products are detailed on this website, but those not detailed can also be supplied - DWT is able to source in excess of 60,000 products from numerous manufacturers.
DWT is committed to providing services and products to enable the provision of clean drinking water for everyone around the world.
