Abstract
Between Fiscal Years 2000 and 2003, our Office of Investigations laboratory fraud unit saw an increase in cases. Drinking water samples, if not appropriately analyzed, will increase the risk of public exposure to harmful contaminants. We conducted this review to identify vulnerabilities in the drinking water sample analysis process and promising techniques to improve laboratory integrity.
