Environmental laboratories practice “applied analytical chemistry” by analyzing samples using a list of potential contaminants to determine how much, if any, of the contaminant is present. These contaminants, the methods used to analyze for them, and the maximum amount of contaminant allowed in the sample are defined by regulation. This paper provides an overview of these regulations, including the Safe Water Drinking Act, Clean Water Act, and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and the applicability of Shimadzu instrumentation to meet or exceed EPA method criteria.
