Although U.S. regulations are cited, the EU and other industrial nations have stringent regulatory requirements for drinking water content. U.S. municipal drinking water and wastewater treatment plants must comply with EPA 300.0 and EPA 300.1 for drinking water requirements. These plants are also known to carry discharge permits by the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). Both cationic and anionic determinations help monitor the primary contaminant specifications. This also includes toxic disinfection byproducts, industrial pollutants and secondary specifications for the acceptable taste of the water. In municipal wastewater, anion and cation determinations ensure that no environmental effects occur as a result of discharging high-salt concentrations into the water system. This webinar demonstrates the advantages of using both ion chromatography and high pressure ion chromatography to separate and quantify common ionic pollutants found in municipal drinking water and wastewater.
Key Learning Objectives:
• Learn about the applications for environmental analysis
• Learn about the importance of regulating certain ionic pollutants in water
• Learn about high pressure ion chromatography and its benefits
