When this procedure was employed, to characterize incinerator quench water many interferences were encountered. Many of the interfering substances found in quench water are also in those water samples mentioned above but in lower concentrations. This report describes the analytical problems created by interferences and demonstrates how they may be overcome using a dissolved oxygen analyzer. Since such an instrument may not be available in every laboratory, this summary also discusses some qualitative tests for interferences and under what circumstances the Alsterberg (Azide) Modification of the Winkler Method may be employed.
