The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Water Quality Laboratory (NWQL) is a full-service laboratory that specializes in environmental analytical chemistry. The NWQL's primary mission is to support USGS programs requiring environmental analyses that provide consistent methodology for national assessment and trends analysis.

This mission directly supports the USGS, which, in part, is charged with providing the Nation with reliable, impartial earth-science information to help decisionmakers manage the Nation's water resources.
