Lizard Analytical Laboratories

Environmental Testing Laboratory


By on September 14, 2017

Lizard Analytical Laboratories provides laboratory testing for contamination of surface water, wastewater, groundwater, soil, mineral, and other materials. LAL is a contractor for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and a subcontractor for the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) Oil Petroleum Storage (OPS) program for State projects. LAL meets or beats the CDLE price for State Lead remediation work. We also run samples for academic research projects as well as for Oil & Gas companies. If you do not recognize a test you need in the list below; call us. We have more resources than we have listed. If LAL does not do a particular test, we know other labs that will.
