LEAP Testing Service at Guthrie offers water testing to residential homeowners and commercial entities.
Unlike public water systems, which are regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), private water supplies, like cisterns, wells and springs, are the responsibility of the homeowner and should be tested periodically to be certain they are safe for drinking.
Many businesses are required by the state to have their water tested routinely. Guthrie LEAP Testing Service is accredited in New York and Pennsylvania for a variety of potable and non-potable analytes.

- Legionellosis (Legionnaires' Disease)
Legionnaires' disease is caused by a type of bacteria called Legionella. Legionella bacteria are found in water sources including rivers, ponds, decorative fountains, cooling towers, hot and cold water systems and spas. Routine testing for Legionella pneumophila has been shown to reduce the risk of outbreaks. Legiolert is a 7-day culture test for Legionella.
