Water: Water Laboratory Alliance (WLA)

Water Laboratory Alliance (WLA)

WLA framework





The Water Laboratory Alliance (WLA) provides the drinking water sector an integrated nationwide network of laboratories with the analytical capability and capacity to respond to intentional and unintentional drinking water contamination events involving chemical, biological, and radiochemical contaminants. The WLA is an integral part of the Environmental Response Laboratory Network (ERLN) that focuses on water.

Formal membership for the WLA was opened in concert with the second phase launch of the ERLN during Fall 2009.  As a result of stakeholder interest, the WLA was consolidated into the Integrated Consortium of Laboratory Networks (ICLN).

To learn about plans for inter-laboratory coordination, please contact your EPA Regional Laboratory Contact listed in the "Contact Information" section.
