  • Third party couriers, including Purolator, have reduced pickups during the holiday. Call your courier service for local pick-up schedules.
  • Samples with short holding times or incubation periods (BOD, EColi, Coliforms, Encore samplers, Residual Chlorine, Turbidity) should not be collected the day before the holiday.
  • For convenience, clients who prefer to drop samples off may do so to avoid shipping delays around holiday closures.
