The method is for the collection and filtration of ambient water samples for subsequent determination of total and dissolved metals at the levels listed. It is designed to support the implementation of water quality monitoring and permitting programs administered under the Clean Water Act. This method is applicable to the metals listed and other metals, metals species, and elements amenable to determination at trace levels. This method is not intended for determination of metals at concentrations normally found in treated and untreated discharges from industrial facilities. Existing regulations (40CFR Parts 400-500) typically limit concentrations in industrial discharges to the mid to high part-per-billion (ppb) range, whereas ambient metals concentrations are normally in the low part-per-trillion (ppt) to low ppb range.
