2021 Volunteer instructions & SGS Chain of Custody

The Volunteer Instructions for LPP and E coli testing this year are available here. Note the E coli sampling dates have changes, mostly to follow the calendar shifting.  The payment form for E coli is front and centre with new contact information, and payment is due by July 15, 2021.
The SGS Lab Chain of Custody form for 2021 is available here.  Please do not use CofC forms from previous years. Remember to give SGS at least 3 days notice for bottle pick up, as in 2020, due to COVID.  CofC forms are provided by the lab along with the bottles. Email contact information is provided for SGS Lakefield on page 2 of the instructions.  All samples for 2021 are taken there.

New klsa email address

Your KLSA Board has been busy with zoom meetings on Nov 24th and Jan 13th. One of the decisions involved moving our electronic business functions to Google Workplace and having our contact information and KLSA email address updated. The new email is now live and it becomes the main contact address for the association.

The new email is klsa@klsa.info
