The method is for the determination of dissolved elements in ambient waters at EPA water quality criteria (WQC) levels using inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS). It may also be used for determination of total recoverable element concentrations in these waters. The method contains QC procedures that will assure that contamination will be detected when blanks accompanying samples are analyzed.
