Following the June 1976 Consent Decree (NRDC et al. vs. EPA), there has been a continuously increasing demand for the analysis of water samples for the 129 priority pollutants. The protocol originally designed for the analysis of the priority pollutants that are extractable into dichloromethane has been refined to take advantage both of increased experience by analytical chemists and improvements in laboratory instrumentation and automation. Quality control procedures have been set forth that are designed to insure top quality laboratory performance and establish confidence in the reliability of results over a wide range of sample matrices. This paper follows the development of present methodology for the analysis of extractable priority pollutants in water.
