Ensuring GSA Lease Compliance with Comprehensive Water Testing

Understanding GSA Water Testing Requirements

Navigating GSA lease requirements can be daunting, especially for water quality testing. The GSA, manages workspaces for over a million employees and requires strict water testing protocols to ensure safety. Starting in February 2024, the GSA will implement mandatory baseline water quality testing to address issues like water stagnation and Legionella contamination.

Why Compliance Matters

Maintaining compliance with the GSA Water Testing Modification Effort is crucial for lessors to keep their federal leases. Contaminants such as lead, copper, Legionella, and total coliforms pose significant health risks, making thorough water testing essential. Starting next year, lessors will receive notices by mail requiring adherence to new water testing protocols.

  • Mandatory Testing: All lessors must comply with the specific testing protocols outlined by GSA. Prior tests are not accepted due to the dynamic nature of water quality and specific GSA requirements.
  • Responsibility for Remediation: If contaminants are found, lessors are responsible for remediation and any necessary follow-up testing to meet lease compliance.
  • Independent Testing: Testing must be performed by an independent third party to ensure accuracy and compliance with GSA standards.
