lead levels can varygreatly from tap to tap in the same structure. Thepresence of copper at the tap results mainly from low-pH water dissolving copper from the copper piping used in plumbing systems. > Current USEPA regulations for lead and copper are long, complex and comprehensive. Maximum contaminant level goals (MCLG) and action levels, as well as treatment techniques and monitoring requirements, are mandated. The usual requirements for public notice, record keeping and reporting, variances, exemptions, and compliance schedules (based on system size) are in effect. In addition,...

1. the water in the system being tested is assumed to haveconsistent characteristics; and 2. once a comparability study has been done and consistentresults are obtained, the compared method may be used by anyone. 10 different water source samples 3-4 sub-samples from each, and 3 analyses using each of the 2 methodsThis is a total of 180-240 tests plus a number of qualitycontrol (QC) checks. Screening tests are also required to determine if the samples contain a detectable level of analyte. If not, they must be spiked. The data manipulation for proving the two sets of resultsare equivalent...

precision and accuracy on a range of standards determination of operator-related bias comparison of results to GFAAS results on standards effects of interferences recovery of spikes in various drinking waters sample preservation and QC considerations > While the authors purpose was not to approve the test kit,the results are encouraging for using the kit as a practical field analysis method. They found the detection limit of the test kit to be 4 ҵg/L. Above that level they determined that the accuracy of the GFAAS and test kit procedures in spiked deionized water [standards] were...
