Abstract
The Selected Office of Water Methods and Guidance CD-ROM includes recently developed and frequently requested analytical methods and related guidance, including methods for the detection of trace metals, microbiological contaminants, and organics in wastewater and drinking water, chemical and biological methods for biosolids, guidance documents on Office of Water's (OW) revised approach to method approval, whole affluent toxicity testing, and oil and grease analysis. Version 2.0 of this popular CD-ROM lets you search, print and display the full text of more than 500 EPA wastewater and drinking water methods and guidance documents. Additionally, the CD-ROM contains the full text of all EPA methods approved for compliance monitoring at 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) part 136 and 141 including the 500-, 600- and 1600-series methods and a complete version of the March 1983 revision of Methods for Chemical Analysis of Water and Waste (MCAWW). For the first time, the Office of Water CD-ROM identifies which methods are approved at 40 CFR parts 136 and 141 for wastewater and drinking water compliance monitoring. The EPA Methods and Guidance for the Analysis of Water CD-Rom, version 2.0, includes the full text of newly developed EPA wastewater and drinking water methods and guidance documents. Additionally, the CD contains tables detailing what methods are approved at 40 CFR part 136 and 141. For the first time, the Office of Water CD includes links tables based on those in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) listing which methods are approved for wastewater and drinking water compliance monitoring. Accessing approved EPA water test methods has never been easier. To find which methods are approved an an analyte of interest, simply click on the tables of approved methods button and search by analyte. Then click on the EPA method number listed for that analyte to instantly access the full text of approved methods listed at 40 CFR parts 136 and 141. Software includes a powerful text search engine to allow searches by method number, analyte name, and key words. All methods, guidance documents, and graphics have been converted to Adobe Acrobat8 Portable Document Format (PDF) to ensure efficient text searches.
