This publication includes laboratory procedures most often performed in wastewater laboratories and general wet chemistry procedures, activated sludge process control tests, bacteriological testing, and special sections about basic laboratory techniques and proper use of spectrophotometers and colorimetry. Each method includes a sample benchsheet and is broken down into easy-to-follow, step-by-step directions that adhere to recommendations found in the online 21st edition of Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater and approved U.S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines. The intent of the publication is to help the operator–analyst produce analytical data that are defensible, precise, and accurate for process control and permit reporting, with a special emphasis on quality assurance and quality control.
