Water samples are analyzed for pH, ANC, and conductivity using a

ManTech™ autotitrator. ANC is determined by gran titration.

Major anions sulfate, nitrate, and chloride; and cation ammonium

are measured using a Dionex™ ion chromatograph.

 
 

Cations and trace metals (Ca, Na, K, Mg, Al, Cu, Fe, Mn, Si, Zn) are analyzed using

a Thermo- Electron™ inductively coupled plasma - atomic emission spectrometer.

Total organic carbon and total nitrogen are measured

using a Shimadzu TOC-V analyzer.
