Abstract
This article has been requested by ASTM to be included in a special issue of Standardization News, dealing with analytical chemistry. The article traces federal water legislation as it pertains to drinking water and wastewater and how it applies to the approved methodology for metal analyses. Emission spectroscopy, atomic absorption, and inductively coupled argon plasma spectroscopy are discussed. A comparison of analytical detection limits, optimum ranges and advantages, as well as disadvantages, are discussed.
